Dalton Benjamin Robinson Jr., a resident of Bodden Town, appeared in Summary Court on Thursday charged with burglary of a West Bay residence on Monday.

Mr. Robinson, 21, was also charged with criminal trespass and damage to property in connection with the same incident.

Defense attorney Lee Halliday-Davis told Magistrate Philippa McFarlane that she was not making any bail application that day. She explained that the defendant had another matter in which a legal ruling was expected on Monday, Oct. 8. She said she would wait until after that date.

Police said the West Bay incident took place just before 3:30 a.m. on Monday. Police and other emergency services responded to a 911 call from the Birch Tree Hill area.

There, it was reported that a man had unlawfully entered the premises, caused damage to items inside and stolen an item from the residence.

The man, alleged to be Mr. Robinson, returned to the property later that morning, when he was arrested and taken into custody.

On Thursday, the magistrate noted that Mr. Robinson had other charges before the court, including damage to property, threats to kill, theft and failing to surrender. All files were put to a date next week.
