Ronald Gill, 28, a carpenter of #70 Fabers Road, was today taken before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer to answer a single charge of burglary.
Police alleged that Gill, sometime between October 25 and October 26, broke into the Mount Olive Seventh Day Adventist Church and stole (1) black speaker valued at $500; (2) grey speakers valued at $300 each; (1) black and gold amplifier valued at $900; (1) grey amplifier valued at $500; (1) silver tape recorder valued at $150; (1) black microphone valued at $50; and (3) black wire cords valued at $30 each, all to a total value of $2,790.
The items were recovered from a vacant room located opposite the church on Fabers Road.
Gill pleaded not guilty to the charge and, although the prosecutor had not objected to bail, the Senior Magistrate did, calling the act “inexcusable – to break into a church. Not even the church is safe now, she said.
Gill was remanded to the Hattieville Prison until his next court appearance on December 18, 2012.
