At the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court today, three men were released on $60,000 bail each, after they were charged for stealing four cows.
20-year-old Quesan Frank of Tabathinga, 18-year-old Curtis Charles of Tabathinga and 28-year-old Ivor Rodriquez of Bartica, all appeared in court today and entered not guilty pleas.
The Court was told that between the 21st August and the 24th August, the three broke into a ranch owned by Walter Martin and stole 4 Cows worth $480,000.
Police Prosecutor Arvin Moore objected to bail on basis that there have been a lot of similar cases in the area and one of the three accused, was fingered in many crimes related to this present one.
Additionally, Moore told the court that three of the four cows have been recovered alive, while the remaining one was slaughtered.
After the cows went missing during the night, the community was searched and the number one defendant Quesan Frank was contacted. The man reportedly admitted to the crime and took the owner to the area where the other cows were being hidden.
Bail was granted in the sum of $60,000 and the three will have to be back in Court in September.
