The man accused of stealing the vehicle belonging to CNC3 anchor Khamal Georges was denied bail when he appeared before a Port of Spain Magistrate on Tuesday.

The 38-year-old man from Belmont has since been remanded into police custody.

Gamal Waldron, 38, a labourer of Layan Hill, Belmont was charged with larceny motor vehicle when he appeared before Magistrate Nizam Khan, in the Port of Spain 11th Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

The matter was adjourned to September 11, 2018.

Georges reported to the St. James Police that around 2:05am last Thursday, he was confronted at gunpoint by two men, outside his home, who then stole his Kia Sportage motor vehicle and other valuables.

Waldron was charged by ASP (Ag.) Anderson Pariman, also of POS CID on Monday.
