Guilty plea to 5 offences
A man with a mental history appeared in court yesterday accused of smashing a number of windows in the historic St Mary’s Anglican Church on Sunday.
Renison Isaiah Prince, 24, of Fairfield, Black Rock, St Michael, was not required to plead to the indictable charge of damaging 19 windows and a plant pot belonging to the church. That damage was estimated at $38 055.
However, the unemployed man pleaded guilty to committing five other offences, also in The City, when he appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.
He admitted to destroying by fire one waste-paper bin belonging to Republic Bank (Barbados) Ltd; damaging a van belonging to Ryan Bartlett; eight windows belonging to the Crown; a window belonging to Khan Chambers and ten windows belonging to Kishore Lalwani, all on Sunday.
In objecting to bail, police prosecutor Station Sergeant Neville Reid said Prince was already on bail for another matter.
Magistrate Douglas Frederick remanded him to HMP Dodds until November 20. (RB)
