William Tiabo, 30, a resident of Ladyville, was arraigned on a burglary charge after he and others allegedly broke into the home of Troy Gabb, Jr., and stole an assortment of electronics, watches and footwear valued at $15,338.
According to police, Gabb reported that between November 8, 2013 and November 9, 2013, someone broke into his house and stole a 52″ television valued at $2,500; a 32″ television valued at $1,800; a microwave oven, a pair of Nike brand tennis shoes, a pair of Jordan brand tennis shoes, a pair of gold bangles, a gold watch, an XBOX Kinect, a laptop computer, 10 cases of beer, and other electronics and cash.
Tiabo was unrepresented when he appeared before Magistrate Dale Cayetano and pleaded not guilty to the charge. The prosecutor objected to bail based on the seriousness of the crime and on the possibility that Tiabo could interfere with their case and dispose of the stolen items.
Nevertheless, Tiabo was offered and met bail of $6,000 and one surety of the same amount, and is scheduled to appear back in court on February 11, 2014.
