Man caught driving stolen motorcycle

Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

A man who was caught driving a motorcycle that was allegedly stolen in the United States was remanded in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

He is Andrew Richards of Duhaney Park, St Andrew.

Richards' attorney Andrew Irving said his client had no knowledge the bike was stolen. He said Richards was only testing the bike when he was stopped.

Irving added that his client deserves to be granted bail as the police have nine months in which to complete their investigation.

Resident Magistrate Marcia Dunbar-Green said the failure of the accused to provide documentation is questionable. Richards was then remanded until February 19.

Allegations are that on March 31 last year, Richards was seen driving a Honda motorcycle without registration plates. He was stopped and investigations revealed the bike was stolen in Connecticut in 2009. He was charged with receiving stolen property.

RM Dunbar-Green said further investigations must be conducted to find how the bike got into Jamaica.
