Man gets 18 months jail after admitting to breaching his bail


Tribune Staff Reporter


A 61-year-old man was sentenced to 18 months in prison yesterday after admitting to breaching his bail on a pending armed robbery conspiracy charge.

Magistrate Samuel McKinney charged Brian Goodridge with fifteen counts of violating bail conditions.

Goodridge was on bail for charges of conspiracy to commit armed robbery, abetment to armed robbery, and abetment to attempted murder.

This is in connection with an alleged heist at LPIA in 2021, where $2,654 in a safe deposit bag was stolen from Bahamasair.

Two officers providing security detail were allegedly shot at during this incident.

Goodridge allegedly planned the heist with others.

The defendant reportedly breached his court-ordered nightly residential curfew and failed to sign in to his local police station on fifteen separate occasions between November 21, 2023, and January 22.

After pleading guilty to the charges, Goodridge was sentenced to 18 months at the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services.
