UPDATE: Guishard’s print allegedly at crime scene – Officer

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – The trial of Doyle Guishard continued yesterday, November 12, 2013 with evidence being led by a police officer at the Magistrate’s Court.

Doyle pleaded not guilty to the alleged burglary which took place at Major Bay on December 16, 2010 on a yacht (Hulll#11).

According to the complaint read in court, several personal and electronic items were stolen during the burglary, including an iPhone, Panasonic digital camera, wedding bands, an engagement ring, a Nokia phone, necklace, watch, leather pouch, a sum of cash, credit and debit cards. All told, the value of the stolen items was given as $8,011.

Officer Forbes Washington, with over 20 years in fingerprint analysis and comparison, offered testimony about the defendant’s prints which were allegedly found at the scene of the crime.

The trial was halted prematurely, however, as another officer who was required to testify was not available and an adjournment date had to be sought in the matter.

Senior Magistrate Tamia Richards related that an adjournment should prove no prejudice to Guishard as he was already in custody on another offence. Attorney Marie Lou Creque had no objection to a date for continuation.

The matter was set for December 13, 2013 for continuation.

Youth accused of yacht burglary pleads not guilty

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Doyle Guishard tendered a not guilty plea as he opted to have a burglary charge placed against him heard before the Magistrate’s Court instead of the High Court today, October 16, 2013. 

The alleged burglary took place at Major Bay on December 16, 2010 on a yacht (Hulll#11). According to the complaint read in court today, several personal and electronic items were stolen during the burglary, including an iPhone, Panasonic digital camera, wedding bands, an engagement ring, a Nokia phone, necklace, watch, leather pouch, a sum of cash, credit and debit cards. All told, the value of the stolen items was given as $8,011.

Guishard is represented by attorney at law, Marie Lou Creque while the prosecution is led by attorney, Annjel Flax Solomon.

The Virtual Complainant (VC) in the matter, David Strange, gave testimony by video link from Surrey, England after Guishard entered his plea of not guilty.

Strange testified that he stayed in the Virgin Islands between December 10-18, 2010 and stayed at Major Bay on the yacht that he had rented from the Moorings.

He told the court that his yacht was moored at Fat Hogs Bay on the evening of December 15, 2010 when he came ashore to go to a Chinese restaurant with his wife, Angela Corrigan.

According to Strange, the couple left the yacht ‘anchored and floating with all the hatches shut’. He told the court that he and his wife returned after approximately two hours.

Strange told the court that upon his return to the boat he noticed the bulk of his luggage was in the cockpit with various things lying around, including many of the couple’s personal effects. Strange also testified that a black bag had been sliced open and personal effects were also taken from this as well.

He further testified that he went below deck to see if anything else was missing and whether there was any damage and found objects strewn about as well as a damaged television. He then called the police who conducted investigations.

The trial will continue on November 12, 2013.
