Campden Park man charged in relation to ‘SINGER’ burglary

A labourer of Campden Park has been charged with property damage and burglary of the appliance store ‘Singer,’ which took place on November 28.

Glenroy Browne appeared before the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court last Thursday and pleaded not guilty to two charges.

He is alleged to have, without lawful excuse, damaged one glass window valued at $2,000, the property of Dempster Veira of Cane Garden. He is also charged that on this day, he entered ‘Singer Ltd’ as a trespasser and stole a quantity of items valued at $6,588.80, also the property of Dempster Veira of Cane Garden.

The arrest comes a week after a video revealed two masked men breaking into the store at around 2:15 a.m. on the morning of November 28. The men are seen throwing something (presumably a stone) through the window and passing three flat screen televisions through the opening.

Magistrate Bertie Pompey chose to remand Browne in custody until December 14, when he will return to the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court for the matter to be revisited.(KR)
