Truck man granted bail
Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

The second of two men who allegedly stole a truck laden with appliances valued at JA $1.8 M was granted bail in the sum of $350,000 when he appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court today.

He is Andre Fuller of West Bay, Portmore, St Catherine.

When the matter was mentioned before Resident Magistrate Natalee Brookes, defence attorney Earl Hamilton made a successful bail application on Fuller's behalf.

He told the court that the Crown has virtually no case against his client and is only depending on a caution statement that was collected before he spoke to a lawyer.

Hamilton told the court that the 22-year-old accused was a fit candidate for bail as he has no previous conviction,has a steady place of abode and will return to clear his name.

Bail was granted on condition that he reports to the Bridgeport Police Station daily and return to court on September 16 for a final mention date.

Allegations are that on May 24 this year, the accused went to Old Road, Kitson Town, St Catherine, and drove away a Mack Truck laden with DVD players, stoves, refrigerators, television sets, stereos and other items.

Fuller allegedly drove the vehicle to Lakes Pen and parked in bushes where the items were loaded on another truck driven by Adrian Green. The vehicle was eventually held by the police.

An investigation was launched which led to both Green and Fuller being charged with larceny.
