Seven persons, among them two 15 year old girls, were charged with handling stolen goods for one flat screen television that was stolen
during the burglary of the residence of Honorary Consul to Lebanon, Sarkis Abou Nehra, when they appeared today before Magistrate Deborah Rogers. The adults are 42 year old Paul Jex Sr.; his son, 20 year old Paul Jex Jr. 28 year old Monique Cadle, 18 year old Paula Gentle and 20 year old Anthony Smith. They pleaded not guilty to the charge and they were offered bail of $2,500 each. They are to return to court on January 14, 2016. The police reported that they found them with a gray and dark LG flat screen television value $1,750.00, the property of Sarkis Abou Nehra, on December 10. The television was one of the items stolen in a home invasion at the Lebanese Consul’s home in Burrell Boom almost two weeks ago. In that home invasion, the caretaker’s wife was also reportedly raped.
