Man charged with boat club break-in and theft

A man accused of a break-in at a boat club and the theft of a bottle of whisky was remanded in custody yesterday.

Jeshon Sullivan, from St George's, pleaded not guilty to the charges and also denied he breached curfew regulations.

It was alleged in Magistrates' Court that Mr Sullivan, 27, stole a bottle of Chivas Regal scotch from the St George's Dinghy and Sports Club on Cut Road on Wednesday.

Javone Rogers, for the Crown, said prosecutors would ask for jail time if Mr Sullivan was convicted and said the alleged curfew breach was the “most serious” seen by the courts so far because of the burglary.

Jonathan White, Mr Sullivan's defence lawyer, asked for bail and said any concerns the court might have about the defendant could be remedied by an order to have him wear an electronic tag.

Magistrate Tyrone Chin adjourned the case until April 30.
