Fourth Person Charged Over Btc Break-In


Tribune Staff Reporter


A FOURTH suspect was arraigned in magistrates court on Friday over the recent break-in and robbery at the Bahamas Telecommunications Company's JFK location.

Keno Kemp, 25, of South Beach appeared before Magistrate Andrew Forbes to face charges of shop breaking and stealing from a shop concerning the robbery of the RND Plaza store.

It is alleged that Kemp, sometime between April 28 and 29, broke into and entered BTC with the intent to steal.

It is then alleged that he, being concerned with others, stole $10,023.44 in cash, $9,098.76 in cheques, 50 mobile phones and devices valued at $1,580.50 and a steel safe valued at $2,000, all property of BTC.

Three others, Kevin Morris Sands, 25, Defence Force officer Darien Miller, 32, and his girlfriend, 25-year-old Stephenique Jones were previously arraigned on the same charges.

As the others did in their respective arraignments, Kemp pleaded not guilty to the charges and returns to court for trial on July 4.

Two former police officers, constables Ricardo Henry Bain and Herman Lawrence Pinder, were dispatched to investigate the break-in, but instead helped themselves to the three phones which they stuffed in their chest area. The alleged theft was captured on the store's hidden camera.

Both constables have been ordered to pay a fine of $3,000 or spend 18 months at the Department of Correctional Services.
