The case against Juan Diaz, who has been charged with larceny, has been added to the list of matters to be heard before a judge in the High Court during the January criminal assizes.
Diaz, a 23-year-old hotel employee, has been accused of stealing over $20,000 worth of appliances some time between September 30th and October 7th, 2018, from a home located in the Old Runway area.
He allegedly stole a Kenmore elite washing machine, a Kenmore elite dryer and a Kenmore elite pedestal, as well as a folding table, a cooler, 50 ft extension cord, wooden utensils, crystal glasses, and a speaker, among other items.
Yesterday, Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh committed the matter to High Court of Justice after Diaz made an appearance in the St. John’s Magistrates’ Court.
