Two teens charged with break-ins

A teenager linked to a series of burglaries has been charged alongside another teen in Magistrates' Court.

Tyler Christopher, 17, and Walkeem Philpott, 19, both deny the charges, along with handling stolen goods.

According to prosecutor Susan Mulligan, they are being investigated for links to a “great number” of other items recovered by police which are believed stolen.

The items were recovered from Mr Christopher's bedroom during a police search on October 16.

Ms Mulligan added that a third individual, Jaquii Pearman DeSilva, had been arrested in connection with the burglaries and is expected to be charged.

Mr Christopher, of Bat and Ball Lane, Sandys, is accused of entering a High Point Lane, Devonshire residence and stealing an iPad worth $888, along with jewellery, on October 10.

He also faces a lesser, alternate charge of receiving the iPod as stolen goods.

Mr Christopher is charged jointly with Mr Philpott, of Curving Avenue, Pembroke, of entering a Derwent Lane South residence on October 14 and taking clothes and an iPod to a total value of $1,328.

Both denied an alternative charge of receiving items as stolen goods.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo granted both defendants bail of $3,000 each with a like surety; they are also required to wear electronic monitoring bracelets, and abide by a curfew. Trial was set for January 24.
