A 24-year-old phlebotomist of McDoom Public Road, Greater Georgetown, who is accused of stealing three ounces of raw gold from her lover was on Thursday remanded to prison.
Jamila Simona McCammon appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
She pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that on December 14, 2021, at Roxanne Burnham Gardens, Georgetown, she broke into the dwelling house of Joseph Mitchell and stole three ounces of raw gold valued at $1,035,000, property of the said Joseph.
According to information, Joseph and McCammon are in an intimate relationship. The court heard that Joseph recently returned home from the interior where he works as a miner.
After returning home, Joseph contacted McCammon and asked her to have sex with him. However, she refused. On December 14, Joseph was at a shop consuming alcohol with his friends after which he went home.
On his arrival home, he observed that his bedroom was ransacked and inquired from a tenant if anyone visited his home. He was told that McCammon was the only person to enter his apartment.
The man then made checks around his apartment and discovered that three ounces of raw gold were missing. He then reported the matter to the Police.
The Police contacted the woman. A search was conducted at her residence and the missing raw gold was found in a bottle. She was later arrested and charged with the offence.
