Woman remanded after burglary charge

Defendant admits breaching curfew imposed three days earlier

Sarah Elizabeth Day, 40, was remanded in custody on Tuesday after appearing in Summary Court on a new burglary charge, plus two theft charges, an attempted theft and damage to property. 

Crown counsel Candia James asked that bail be revoked, pointing out that Day had been granted bail on Aug. 27. Conditions included a curfew from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. 

Three days later, Day was arrested at 1:30 a.m. on Courts Road for breach of bail and burglary. 

According to terms and conditions of bail, Courts Road was not Day’s area of residence. A police officer in court indicated that a file for the new charge should be brought for Day’s next appearance on Tuesday, Sept. 10. 

Day started telling Magistrate Valdis Foldats that she admitted breaking her curfew and why, but he stopped her, saying it was a separate issue. 

The burglary charge in court on Tuesday, about which police issued a press release, related to an incident on July 31. Day is accused of entering a George Town apartment as a trespasser and stealing a silver MacBook laptop computer. 

She appeared in court on Aug. 21 and was remanded apparently because she had failed to attend court on previous occasions. Charges on that date related to theft of electrical items from a vehicle on June 10; theft of $319 cash at a George Town business premises on June 20; attempted theft of cigarettes, a lighter and bottle of alcohol from a vehicle on Aug. 18 and damage to the vehicle. 

Bail was granted on Aug. 27 with conditions of residence, reporting to the police station and the curfew.
