ATM theft case put off

The case against the man charged with theft from an Automatic Teller Machine and conspiracy to defraud has been adjourned again.

Charges against Luis Eduardo Moreno Castillo had been scheduled for a preliminary inquiry on 31 August so they could go before the Grand Court at its next opening on 6 September.

But Magistrate Nova Hall heard that Castillo no longer wanted the services of the attorney who had been representing him. The defendant named another attorney he wanted, but that person said he was unable to accept the job.

The magistrate adjourned Castillo’s matters until Monday, 11 September, to give him time to sort out who will be defending him.

Castillo, 31, is charged with conspiracy to defraud two banks, theft of $2,500 from a bank account by ATM access and money laundering.

During an earlier appearance the Venezuelan national applied for bail on the basis that he would be better able to help authorities sort out matters. But bail was denied and he remains in custody.
