An Arima mechanic and a Sangre Grande la-
bourer accused of stealing vehicles from the San
Fernando district were remanded into custody
yesterday to reappear before a magistrate today
Christopher Ramoutarsingh, 26, and Joel Balcon,
32, who were arrested over the weekend, appeared in
the San Fernando Magistrates Court charged with a
total of six charges.
They are jointly charged with stealing a $10,000 Nis-
san B-12 from the car park of the San Fernando General
Hospital on November 16, 2016 and a $85,000 Nissan
E-24 van from Gulf City Mall car park.
Balcon is also charged with stealing a $75,000 Nis-
san car from Gulf City Mall car park in May 2016.
The other three charges alleged that Ramoutars-
ingh stole a $175,000 Ford Ranger from Gulf View, a
$26,000 Nissan B-13 from the Waterfront car park at
Lady Hailes Avenue and a $120,000 Nissan E-24 van
from Gulf City Mall car park on January 23.
The charges were laid by PC Brent Noel, PC Dennis
Samm, PC Lincoln Morris, WPC Allony Marshall and
PC Dhoray. Prosecutor Cleyon Seedan asked Senior
Magistrate Nanette Forde-John for an opportunity
to have the accused traced.
Ramoutarsingh's attorney Shaun Teekasingh was
disappointed that a tracing report was not produced
as his client had provided his fingerprints.
He said Ramoutarsingh had a clean record and had
been in custody since Saturday. They will reappear
in court today for bail to be considered.

drifted out to sea, the Coast Guard and Air
Guard who have been conducting search-
es, would have spotted them by now.
He said fishermen in the area, as well
as Venezuela's Guardia Nacional, have
also been alerted to keep watch for the

Arnold, 50, a father of four and Ste-
phen, 21, both of Icacos, reportedly left
the shore around 11 am on Tuesday to fetch
a net when large waves overturned their
pirogue, pitching both men in the water.
They have not been seen since, and nei-

which were on board.
Stephen's father, Ricky Beharry said
he had little faith that his only son would
survive as he was not a good swimmer.
Beharry said his son went to sea to earn
some money so he could pursue a Seaman
Class IV certificate course.
Arnold's wife, Sharda Beharry, said her
husband was a good swimmer but was
hearing a number of conflicting stories
about their disappearance, which has left
