4 fingered for Burglary of Myvette Home

Gregory Myvette

A heist at the home of a Lord’s Bank resident last Tuesday netted the culprits over four thousand dollars in stolen items, including two flat screen televisions and assorted jewelry. Police have arrested three men and one of their mothers, who all appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer today. Thirty-four year old John Leslie, nineteen year old Samuel Clifton Halliday and twenty year old Gregory Myvette were jointly charged with Burglary and Conspiracy to Commit Burglary. Myvette was additionally charged with two counts of Handling Stolen Goods while his mother, forty-one year old Ava Pugh, was charged with a single count because a significant portion of the items stolen from Zoila Murray Swazo were found at their home on Zericote Street.

Samuel Clifton Halliday

Halliday, who was caught with some of Swazo’s jewelry and one of her TV’s, was also charged with Handling Stolen Goods. All four accused persons pleaded not guilty to the charges and the police prosecutor objected to bail for the three men. The prosecutor submitted that police have a strong case since one of them confessed to the burglary and implicated the other two.

The second argument is that the accused men may interfere with the investigation since police are still in the process of recovering the stolen items. Senior Magistrate Frazer agreed and denied bail, having Leslie, Halliday and Myvette remanded until July fifth. Pugh, on the other hand, was granted bail of two thousand, five hundred dollars. Swazo reported to police that her home was burglarized on May twenty-ninth while she was out and items valued at four thousand, three hundred and seventy-four dollars were stolen. The culprits gained entry into the house by prying open the back door.
