Mario Miguel Manderson, 43, appeared in Summary Court on Friday morning, when he pleaded not guilty to a charge of burglary from last October.
It was Manderson’s first appearance on the charge. A police press release issued on Friday indicated that the charge arose from an incident at a residence on Templeton Street in George Town on Oct. 22, 2016. During that incident, the occupant interrupted a burglar inside the residence and a scuffle with the intruder ensued before the man escaped.
Manderson is charged with entering the premises as a trespasser and stealing a black leather bag containing cash, a brown leather bag, and a wallet containing cash and personal papers. The money and goods taken had a total value of $1,030.
The presiding magistrate set trial for May 1 and a case management hearing for April 26. Meanwhile, Manderson was remanded in custody.
