THE alleged burglar of the home of a millionaire’s daughter was arraigned in Magistrate’s Court yesterday in connection with the $42,000 burglary and the theft of a jeep, owned by the Lyford Cay resident’s company.
Jermain Ramdeen, 25, of Marshall Road, appeared before Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez yesterday to face two counts each of burglary and armed robbery in addition to a charge of stealing.
Ramdeen was not required to enter a plea to any of charges except for stealing, which he denied.
It is claimed that between 7:30pm and 10:30pm on October 7, 2012, he broke into the West Bay Street home of Bianca Nygard, daughter of Canadian fashion designer Peter Nygard.
It is claimed that he stole an Apple laptop, a Dell laptop and a Toshiba laptop together valued at $3,150.
Regarding the remaining three charges, two armed robbery and one burglary, it is claimed that around the same time, Ramdeem broke into the West Bay Street home of Margaret Mullin.
It is alleged that while armed with a crowbar, he robbed Miguel Parada and Margaret Mullin.
Parada was robbed of a Seiko watch, a gold bracelet, two pairs of diamond earrings, two pairs of diamond necklaces, three gold hoop earrings, an iPod, an Apple laptop, sunglasses, a sweater, and a knife, together valued at $5,450. He was also robbed of $6,000 cash.
Mullin was robbed of $480 cash and a blue 2008 Murano Jeep worth $30,000, the property of Nygard Holding Limited.
Other than the stealing charge, the Jamaican was not required to enter a plea to the other charges. He was told his case would be fast-tracked to Supreme Court for trial through a Voluntary Bill of Indictment.
That Bill presentation is scheduled for April 16, three days before a second presentation concerning the December 23, 2012 murder of Warren Wilmott.
Before being remanded to prison, Ramdeem asked the magistrate if he could see a doctor because he was feeling pain in his chest since his arrest more than a week ago.
Chief Magistrate Gomez allowed the request and ordered that Ramdeen be seen by a physician.
