Young is alleged to have stolen the money and vehicles from his former employer, STAR Leasing Service Limited.

Robert Henry Young, 37, a taxi driver of #9 Vernon Street, is behind bars tonight since he was unable to meet his $20,000 bail after being charged with four counts of theft.

According to police, between October of 2012 and August of 2013, Young allegedly stole a black Saturn vehicle valued at $8,000, and a white 2000 Kia valued at $10,000.

They also allege that Young, on May 13, 2013, stole $1,000 in cash, and on June 26, 2013, stole $4,800 in cash, the cash and the vehicles being the properties of STAR Leasing Service Limited, where Young was employed at the time.

Young was unrepresented when he appeared in court and was charged with the theft that netted cash and cars that totaled $24,300 in value. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and was offered bail of $20,000, with four sureties of $5,000 each.

He also owed the court $600 from a previous drug possession conviction, and was unable to meet his bail.

Young is scheduled to return to court on December 10, 2013.
