Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

A man who was caught driving a truck loaded with copper wires valued at $400,000 was granted bail when he appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Charged with larceny and malicious destruction of property is Darrian Medley, 28, of Spanish Town, St Catherine.

When the matter came up in court, attorney-at-law Everton Dewar made a successful bail application.

He told the court that his client had been in custody for two months and had denied the charges. He added that his client was not a flight-risk.

Resident Magistrate Marcia Dunbar-Green then offered bail to Medley.

He is to report to the Spanish Town Police Station on Mondays, to surrender his travel documents and return to court in May.

It is alleged that on December 9, last year, a truck driven by Medley was stopped by the police. During a search, a number of boxes with copper wires were found.

Investigation by the police revealed the wires were stolen from a Digicel site at Avon Park.

He was subsequently charged with unlawful possession of property which was upgraded to larceny charges when he appeared in court.
