Thief taken into custody

A man who stole from a bystander on Church Street has been remanded into custody.

Daquan Burgess, 26, admitted stealing a $50 bill when he appeared in Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

The court heard that Burgess, of no fixed address, took the money when it fell out of a person’s pocket near an HSBC ATM on Monday.

The complainant was not named in court.

Burgess was arrested for the offence a short time later near People’s Pharmacy.

Senior magistrate Maxanne Anderson adjourned the case to May 22 for sentencing and remanded Burgess, who has previous convictions, into custody until that time.
