Painter charged with larceny gets bail

A professional painter was granted bail in the sum of $100,000 on Friday in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court after she appeared to answer to larceny of a laptop, a very expensive one, the court was told.

Charged with larceny is Carlene Tulloch of a Havendale, St Andrew, address.

She told the court she was not guilty and the matter against her were all allegations.

The court, however, heard Tulloch was held during a sting operation and the laptop was allegedly found in her possession. The laptop in question is valued at $209,000 and is one of two that went missing.

Resident Magistrate Georgiana Fraser was alarmed at the cost of the laptop and asked the complainant to explain why the device was so expensive.

He came to the fore and said, "Your honour, they were imported from abroad and contains certain specs."

Tulloch was granted bail with conditions.

She is to report to the Constant Spring Police Station every Thursday and surrender her travel documents. A stop order was also placed at all ports of entry and exit.

RM Fraser also requested that the accused give her fingerprints to the police.

Tulloch is to return to court on September 25.

She is being represented by attorney-at-law Micheal Jordan.
