Two jailed for housebreaking


Tribune Staff Reporter


TWO men were sentenced to two years in prison after they were found guilty of housebreaking in New Providence earlier this year.

Assistant Chief Magistrate Subusola Swain tried Marc Semelean, 42, and Jean Mifort, 46, on housebreaking charges.

The pair broke into the residence of Tavallia Dean on May 4 and stole close to $1,000 of the woman’s property.

After being found guilty of the offence, the pair was sentenced to two years at the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services.

Two other men were granted bail after they were accused of a separate robbery earlier this month.

Magistrate Algernon Allen Jr charged Duran Horton, 40, and Navardo Rolle, 31, with robbery.

The duo allegedly robbed Mylanne Dumercy of $2,155 on July 13 in New Providence.

Both accused men pleaded not guilty to the charge. Horton was granted bail at $1,500. Rolle was granted bail at $1,200 under the condition he obey a nightly residential curfew and be fitted with a monitoring device. He is also expected to sign in at the Elizabeth Estates Police Station every Monday, Wednesday and Friday by 7pm. The trial begins on September 5.
