Man Denies Damaging Clothes & Stealing

September 15, 2014

Appearing in Magistrates Court this morning [Sept 15], a 30-year-old man denied damaging a woman’s clothing and possessions, as well as allegation of stealing thousands of dollars in jewellery from her.

Derrick Simons plead not guilty to two charges involving alleged damage to clothing and possessions, and additional charges of stealing  jewellery belonging to the same woman.

The first two charges were that in April in Southampton, Mr Simons unlawfully damaged clothing belonging to the woman with the damage said to be just over $2,500, and unlawfully damaged a Halycon Days Enamel Box said to be worth almost $600.

He also faced charged alleging that he stole clothing valued just over $3,700, and a variety of gold and encrusted jewellery  including several rings, necklaces, bracelets which were valued at thousands of dollars.

Magistrate Juan Wolffe granted Mr Simons bail of $5,000, required a surety, and ordered him to stay away from the complainant. The Magistrate set trial for December 2014.
