By LAMECH JOHNSON ljohnson@tribunemedia.net TWO men were granted bail in the Magistrate's Court after they were arraigned in connection with separate burglary and attempted burglary charges. Steven Rolle, 21, of Jubilee Gardens was given bail after he pleaded not guilty to a charge of housebreaking and stealing before Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez in Court One, now located in the new Nassau Street complex. The prosecution alleged that on November 17, 2011, Rolle broke into the home of Kaneesha Sealey at Firetrail Road and stole two lap tops, a surge protector and a digital camera, together valued at $1,270. Rolle denied the allegation and was given a bond of $3,500 by Chief Magistrate Gomez. He was ordered to report to the Carmichael Road police station every Saturday before 6pm as a condition for bail. He returns to Court 10 on May 22 for trial before Magistrate Guilimina Archer. Another man was arraigned before Chief Magistrate Gomez, this time on a charge of attempted housebreaking. It is alleged that 18-year-old John Louis attempted to break into the house of Julian Elliot at Silver Gates Estates with intent to steal. This incident, allegedly committed by Louis, occurred on October 20, 2011. He pleaded not guilty. He too was granted bail - $3,000 - and ordered to report to the Carmichael Road police station every Saturday before 6pm as a condition of bail.
