Logan Lindburg Bodden, 41, was remanded in custody on Thursday after facing a charge of robbery involving a slice of pizza, valued in the particulars of the charge at $225.
Defense attorney John Furniss commented, “That has to be the most expensive pizza ever,” an implied suggestion that there was a mistake in the charge details.
Bodden, a George Town resident, is accused of using force to steal the slice of pizza. The alleged offense occurred at Delworth’s Esso station on Eastern Avenue, in the early hours of Tuesday, April 8.
Crown Counsel Alexander Upton said the complainant was approached as he was going to his vehicle after leaving the station store.
Because robbery can be dealt with only in the Grand Court, Magistrate Grace Donalds transmitted the matter to the higher court for mention on Friday, April 25.
Mr. Furniss applied for bail, pointing out that Bodden could be placed on a curfew with an electronic monitor because he has a job to go to. Mr. Upton objected.
The magistrate refused the bail application, noting that Bodden was on police bail for other matters at the time this incident occurred.
