Man denies curfew breach and tampering with electronic tag

A man yesterday denied a breach of the Covid-19 curfew and damaging an electronic tag.

Eli Hill, 44, pleaded not guilty in Magistrates’ Court to a breach of the Government’s 8pm to 6am curfew and causing $150 worth of damage to the monitoring device.

The offences are alleged to have happened last Thursday in Pembroke.

The court heard that Mr Hill, from Pembroke, had been fitted with the monitor as part of his bail for a charge that had still to be dealt with.

Magistrate Tyrone Chin released Mr Hill on $1,500 bail and adjourned the case until May 24.
