Man in court after electronic monitoring charger is damaged

A Pembroke man yesterday denied damaging the charger to an electronic monitoring device he must wear as a condition of bail.

Skyah Furbert, 20, pleaded not guilty in Magistrates’ Court to one count of causing wilful damage to an electronic charger, the property of Bermuda Security group, on or around January 16.

Mr Furbert was charged along with six other men in December with affray and assault in connection with an incident on December 18 in Pembroke.

He pleaded not guilty and agreed to wear the monitoring device as a part of his bail conditions.

Yesterday, the court heard that the monitoring devices must remain charged in order to give off a steady signal.

When Mr Furbert’s signal faded, officers discovered that the charger had been damaged.

Mr Furbert told the court his younger brother “stood on it” and “dismantled it a little bit”.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner released Mr Furbert on $2,000 bail and ordered him to return to court on April 2 for trial.
