Man remanded for housebreaking
A man who was recaptured after he escaped from police custody last year, while being held on several counts of housebreaking, was remanded when he appeared in the St Catherine Parish Court yesterday.
He is Odean Walker, 23, of Jones Avenue in Spanish Town, St Catherine.
When Walker, who is serving a six-month sentence for escaping custody, appeared before Parish Judge Grace Henry-McKenzie, he was remanded until June 7, when his trial for housebreaking and larceny will begin.
Allegations are that in December 2015, Walker was charged by the Spanish Town police after he was accused of breaking into a property along Nassau Avenue in Greendale, St Catherine.
After being in custody for some time, he managed to escape from lock-up, but was recaptured in February of this year.
