Burglary accused denies taking £1,400 in foreign money

A 30-year-old man accused of illegally entering a property in St. Lawrence and stealing more than £1,400 in euros and dollars will face trial next year.

Gilberto De Sousa Fernandes appeared before Commissioner Sir William Bailhache - sitting with Jurats Charles Richard Blampied and Paul Nicolle - in the Royal Court on Friday.

He pleaded not guilty to one count of illegal entry and stealing $1,140 and €700 - the equivalent of more than £1,400 - on 16 November 2020.

He has been granted bail until 25 November, when he will appear in the Royal Court for a plea and directions hearing. 

He will then appear again on 31 January for a three-day Assize Trial.
