The man who was caught in the Bel Air residence of the daughter of prominent Attorney-at-Law, Andrew Pollard.

A labourer, who claimed he was feeding thirsty pit-bulls, was remanded to prison for breaking and entering and larceny.

The allegation against Junior Alleyne is that on October 31, 2016 at Bel Air Park Georgetown, he broke and entered the dwelling house of Angelica Singh and stole a quantity of items. The items which included a Samsung cellular phone ($150,000), a HP laptop ($103,000), a Dell laptop ($141,000), a suitcase ($20,000), four stag beers ($800), and a perfume (10,000), amounted to $491,240.

The 26-year-old pleaded guilty and offered an explanation to Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.

According to the facts by Police Prosecutor Neville Jeffers, on the day in question, Singh was in the upper flat of her home having a shower, when she was alerted by her barking dogs. The woman then looked through her bathroom door and saw her bedroom door open and suddenly shut. She then stepped out of the bathroom and made checks around the lower flat of her house. There she saw the defendant leaving the yard with the suitcase. The articles were inside. The court heard that Singh raised an alarm and the defendant dropped the suitcase and ran. He was soon caught by public spirited persons and handed over to police, and an investigation was carried out.

In his explanation, Alleyne told the magistrate that he went into yard to feed the thirsty pit bulls.

In response to this, the magistrate asked him how he knew the pit bulls were thirsty, to which he responded that he knew.

Magistrate then questioned him on whether he knows Singh, and after he responded in the negative, she asked why he would go into a yard to feed such dogs without knowing the persons living there. The accused continued to insist that the dogs were thirsty and he had to give them water. He explained further that after he’d given them the water, the pit bulls rushed him and bit him. “Me ain’t trouble nobody thing…I feel guilty to myself cause I don’t understand why the pit bulls was thirsty,” he said.

A not guilty plea was entered based on his explanation and he was remanded to prison til December 7, 2016

      Hi col123. You have reached Angelica herself. Lets start with.. my dog doesn’t live in the yard he was in the house. So when the man entered my home he encountered the dog. Secondly.. I don’t believe I should have to deadbolt my doors when I am just inside going about my day. Also! maybe you only shower when you are expecting someone but I prefer to do so everyday. Just a hygiene tip.
      Demerara waves you do not have permission to publish my name!

        Ma’am, I sincerely apologize for being offensive and not being a gentleman. My comments are disrespectful. I am sorry….
        I still believe those dogs are useless!…in China, barbecue would be in order…

    He should have told the judge that he was an apprentice for the ASPCA…and was checking the dogs…..What I found interesting with the suspect is his lack of footwear…in the scheme of things…walking around outside barefooted is an ominous sign/indication of poverty …when observed in pockets of population…it contrasts profoundly in the levels of economic classes… such as going to school barefoot,is an ominous sign of poverty…. now stealing barefooted!.. well?
