Edison Luke, Georges Jno. Lewis and Fabien Christmas from Portsmouth stole the largest number of items from a Wedding House also located in Portsmouth, belonging to Mark Bergoron on the 12th of November.

Magistrate Ossie Lewis says this is the longest list ever to be read in the court which took the clerk of the court 15 minutes to read.

Some of the items stolen were; electronics, computers, lime modem, dell laptop, silver hard disk, apple iPod, speakers, cameras, SDA cards, modulators, camera tripod, mobile phones and sim cards amongst many others coming up to the sum of seventy thousand, one hundred and forty three dollars and seventy four cents ($71,143.74).

Since Eddison Luke and Fabien Christmas did not have anyone to stand bail for them, they are remanded until a property surety is provided.

However, Georges Jno Lewis father Philsbert Jno Lewis, presented himself as surety for his son.

Bail is open of the sum of $70,000.

The defendant’s father has land estimated at $400,000.

That includes a concrete house which he lives in estimated at $300,000 and a wooden house that is currently being rented estimated at $100,000.

The case will take place on the 7th of March and Jno Lewis is to report at the Portsmouth Police station on Mondays and Fridays between the hours of 7:00am and 7:00 pm.
