A police officer who has been charged with stealing $75, 000 in cash from St. Vincent and the Grenadines Postal Corporation has been remanded in custody for a week pending a bail review.
Police Constable Ettian Charles who has been charged with two counts related to burglary appeared before Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias at the Serious Offences Court, yesterday morning and was remanded for seven days.
Charles is charged that on July 7, 2017 at Kingstown, he entered the Postal Corporation building as a trespasser and stole EC$75,000, the property of the Postal Corporation contrary to Section 217, 1b of the Criminal Code.
He is also charged that he agreed with another person that a course of conduct shall be pursued, which if the agreement were carried out in accordance with the intentions, will amount to an offence of burglary by the parties to the agreement according to Section 310, 1a of the Criminal Code.
Charles was not required to plea, as the charges have been laid indictably.
