Two accused of stealing car deny claim

Rasbert Turner, STAR Writer

Two men who allegedly drove away the car they went to buy were remanded when they appeared in court on Tuesday.

Delroy Reid, 34, labourer of St Catherine, and 50-year-old Gallimore McDonald of Constant Spring, St Andrew, pleaded not guilty when the matter came up in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court.

Lawyers, in applying for bail, told the court that their clients had no intention to steal the vehicle.

Clerk of Courts Nicole Kellier objected to bail on the grounds that Gallimore has a previous conviction and Reid has no fixed address.

Allegations are that on December 5, the complainant parked his Honda motor car valued at $1.4 million with a for-sale sign in Willodene, St Catherine.

The accused Gallimore went into the vehicle and asked to test it on the road. It's reported that Gallimore and the complainant went inside the vehicle. The owner was lured from the vehicle and Gallimore sped away in the vehicle.

Reid also sped off in the same direction; however, the complainant took off the registration number.

A report was made to the police and an investigation was launched, which resulted in both accused men being charged.

They were charged with larceny of motor car.
