By Aaron Humes: A Baghdad Street resident who is originally from Guinea Grass Village, Orange Walk District, is behind bars after he was unable to post bail for a charge of theft.

38-year-old Ruben Carrido pleaded guilty to theft of a $350 Grey 24-inch beach cruiser bicycle, property of Gregory McKoy, stolen on Tuesday, November 7 from Dreamlike Store.

But it was changed to an equivocal plea of not guilty following his explanation to the court.

According to Carrido, he met a man who he knew who told him he forgot his bicycle, which he had parked at the bike rack at Dreamlike Store, and paid him ten dollars to get it back.

After his explanation was given, despite his claim he stole the bike, the Senior Magistrate told Carrido that if he did not know the bicycle was stolen, then she could not accept his guilty plea.

The Senior Magistrate offered him bail in the sum of $600 plus one surety of the same which he was unable to meet. Conditions to Carrido’s bail were that he was not to contact the virtual complainant or any members of his family; he was also told he must stay 100 yards from the complainant.

The complainant discovered the theft when he asked the store’s manager to view their surveillance camera which quickly located the theft as it happened.
