City man pleads guilty to theft

Derrick Bain of Belize City pleaded guilty on Wednesday to a charge of theft, after 9 months on remand at the Central Prison.

He was given credit for time served by Chief Magistrate Ann-Marie Smith, but remains on remand on a separate charge of grievous harm.

On October 22, 2013, Bain is accused of snatching a gold chain from Tanisha Dawson, now a woman police constable, while she was walking on Sixth Street in the Kings’ Park area. But the chain was never recovered, and Derrick Bain told the Chief Magistrate that he lost it while riding off with it.
