The man accused of stealing a vehicle belonging to CNC3 news anchor, Khamal Georges, from outside the Besson Street Police Station, has been denied bail.
38-year-old Gamal Waldron of Layan Hill, Belmont, appeared before magistrate Nizam Khan magistrate in the Port-of-Spain Magistrates' Court where he was called to answer the charge.
The magistrate denied bail on the basis that he had three previous convictions, including housebreaking and theft.
He is to reappear in court on September 11th.
Outgoing Acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams has apologised to CNC3’s Anchor and Senior Reporter Khamal Georges for what he describes as the “additional trauma” caused by the TTPS.
Georges’ vehicle, an Ash Grey KIA Sportage, was stolen at gunpoint on Thursday morning and recovered by Police Officers several hours later. The vehicle which was parked at the Besson Street Police Station for processing and safekeeping was then stolen again.
CNC3’s Anchor and news reporter Khamal Georges’ vehicle has been found, again.
This time at Roget Place, Belmont. The SUV is currently at the Belmont Police Station where it will be processed again.
On Thursday morning around 2 am, Mr Georges’ vehicle was stolen at gunpoint by mask men in St. James.
Police officers later discovered the vehicle at Bath Street Plannings in Port of Spain. It was taken to the Besson Street Police Station. At around 7:45 pm on Thursday the Kia Sportage was stolen from the police station.
Less than 24 hours after CNC3's Khamal Georges vehicle was stolen and recovered, it was stolen again from outside of the Besson Street Police Station.
CNC3 understands an officer on duty was making checks of the compound this afternoon when he noticed the van was not where it was stationed on the roadway.
The officer understood that Khamal Georges, who had visited the Besson Street station earlier, was told to return with his certified copy for the vehicle.
