Ex-Sure employee accused of stealing 300 phones

A former Sure employee is to stand trial in the Royal Court later this year, accused of stealing nearly 300 phones worth over £164,000.

James Arthur Baker (38) is facing one count of larceny as a servant for the offences, which allegedly took place between November 2011 and November 2015 whilst he was working for Sure.

He is also accused of "acquiring criminal property", having allegedly received money "he knew, or suspected was, derived from, or obtained, directly, or indirectly, through criminal conduct" between August 2014 and December 2015.

Mr Baker appeared in Royal Court on Friday to answer the charges. 

His lawyer, Advocate Alison Brown, entered not guilty pleas to both, on his behalf.

The Solicitor General, Mark Temple, therefore asked for a jury trial to take place on 10 August. It is scheduled to last five days.

In the meantime, Mr Baker has been released on bail.
