Man allegedly caught on camera denies crime

Magistrate’s Court, John’s Hole

A man who was allegedly caught on camera with two others vandalising a businessman’s vehicle has denied committing the offence.

The 27-year-old accused, Glenroy Davis, pleaded not guilty during his appearance before Senior Magistrate Tamia Richards.

The complainant who owns a car rental business reported to the police on July 23, 2015 that damage had been done to one of his vehicles.

Allegations are that the businessman parked the vehicle in The Moorings area, and left it there for a client to pick up.

The client later contacted him to report that the vehicle was not working.

The businessman returned to the area to examine the vehicle, and noticed that the ignition switch was damaged.

He later retrieved surveillance footage of the area, and allegedly saw Davis and two women enter the vehicle and fiddle with the switch.

After the businessman reported incident, police met the three alleged perpetrators.

Davis allegedly told the law enforcers that he had nothing to do with the reported vandalism.

Nonetheless, he was charged with criminal damage.

Davis’ two co-accused already made appearances before the court.

In the meanwhile, Magistrate Richards has granted Davis $30,000 bail. He will return to court.
