La Democracia resident charged with school burglary

Twenty-one year old Gary Clark Jr., a resident of La Democracia, who was charged with the  burglary of St. Agnes Anglican Primary School in La Democracia, was denied bail when he appeared on Monday before Magistrate Hettie Mae Stuart. He was remanded into custody until November 7. The prosecution objected to bail on the grounds that the offence has become prevalent in the area, and the defendant might interfere with the investigation which is still ongoing. Magistrate Stuart upheld the objection and remanded Gary Clark.

The incident occurred between October 17 and October 20. The school’s principal, Pamela Neal, reported to the police that the school lost a Dell laptop computer, $730, and 36 Energizer batteries.

Police investigation revealed that the culprit gained entry to the principal’s office, where the stolen items were, by prying open the door of the Standard 6 classroom, and going from there to the principal’s office.
