Charges dismissed against two teens in Brac burglary case

Charges have been dismissed against two teenage males who appeared in court last year in connection with a burglary in Cayman Brac.

The burglary occurred at the Coral Isle Bar on the island’s south side on or before July 28. Numerous bottles of liquor were reported stolen.

Geoff Ryan Scott and Torry Javier Powery, both 17 at the time, were charged with burglary and handling stolen goods.

Recently the complainant came to Grand Cayman and spoke with a Crown counsel, saying he did not wish to proceed with the matter.

The Crown considered his statement and the strength of the case generally before deciding to offer no evidence.

Powery, who was represented by attorney Michael Snape, appeared in Summary Court on March 10. He had pleaded not guilty on an earlier occasion. After Senior Crown Counsel Nicole Petit offered no evidence, Magistrate Valdis Foldats entered a formal verdict of not guilty and dismissed both charges.

Scott, represented by attorney John Furniss, was dealt with previously in the same way.
