Romanian denies theft charge

A Romanian man appeared before Magistrates' Court on Thursday, charged with the theft of $2,525 from Clarien Bank and an attempt to steal a further $15,985.

Tiberiu Gavrila, 44, who is living in an Airbnb accommodation and has no apparent ties to the island, pleaded not guilty to stealing the money from the bank on April 27.

He also denied an attempt to steal the rest on the same day.

Mr Gavrila is alleged to have used coded gift cards to find out people's credit card details.

The defendant was refused bail and remanded in custody.

The case was adjourned until June 10.
