A young man with a series of previous convictions for robbery, theft and burglary was this morning, November 28, remanded to Her Majesty's Prison when he appeared in the Magistrate’s Court once again for a similar matter.
Akeem Stevens of Harrigan’s Estate was not required to plead to two charges of criminal trespass and attempted burglary.
The Court heard that on April 13, at Diamond Estate he unlawfully entered the property of Lashakel Thomas.
According to the details, on the night in question at about 10:30 p.m, the woman was about to take a shower when she heard a rattling at her front door.
Upon making checks, she noticed the sensor lights in her yard were on.
When she looked through her kitchen window, she saw a man dressed in short pants and a blue hoodie lying on the ground next to her car. She alerted her sister who called the Police.
Moments later, the man disappeared as the police vehicle approached.
The Police later reported finding the man hiding shirtless in some shrubs a short distance away.
In court today, the Magistrate questioned the young man about his occupation and he responded saying he was a construction worker. However, he was unable to say where.
Upon hearing that the young man is known for several similar offenses, and has had several convictions, the Magistrate immediately remanded him to prison until his next appearance on December 17.
