Three charged with stealing jewellery

Three men, including two teenagers, have been remanded in custody for allegedly stealing over $33,000 worth of jewellery and electronics.

In Magistrate's Court, Tarick Ebban, 17, of Smith's parish and Dunneiko O'Mara, 19, of St. George's pleaded not guilty to stealing $33,125 worth of goods from the home of William Lang.

Troy Henderson, 20, of Pembroke pleaded guilty to dishonestly receiving the goods when he knew them to be stolen but pleaded not guilty to stealing the goods..

According to prosecutor Nicole Smith, on July 25 in St. George's, Mr Lang came back to his home and noticed that it had been broken into and various jewellery and electronics had been stolen.

He along with his wife Janet Lang and his son Rupert Lang said that the cost of the stolen items was $33,125. After making a complaint to the police they used the ‘Find My iPhone' application to give the location of their iPhone that was among the items stolen.

Detectives tracked the location to Mr Ebban's home where some of the stolen items were claimed and Mr Ebban was arrested and taken to Hamilton Police Station. He admitted to police that he stole the goods, along with Mr O'Mara and Henderson.

Both of the other defendants were arrested in their homes where more of the stolen items were found.

When questioned by police Mr O'Mara admitted to stealing the goods but Henderson denied it.

Some of the stolen items remain missing.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner ordered a social inquiry for both Mr Ebban and Henderson and remanded all the defendants into custody.

They will all reappear for mention on August 11, while Henderson will be sentenced on September 9.
