Ardel O’Garro seems to be racking up quite the criminal resume with his extensive history of theft and deception.
It’s almost like he’s trying to set a record or something! But unfortunately for him, the only records he’ll be breaking are the ones in the police station.
With over 25 previous convictions, O’Garro is giving the term “repeat offender” a whole new meaning.
In one of his convictions, he is accused of two instances of theft, where he allegedly stole $150 from a woman on November 1 and an identical amount from a man in Fitches Creek on November 3.
Moreover, he is confronted with a charge of obtaining money under false pretences stemming from an incident on November 5 at High Point.
In this case, it is said that he defrauded a man and obtained $140 by falsely pretending to be authorized by a man to collect a cooler containing fish & lobster from a vessel.
O’Garro recently appeared before the All Saints Magistrate’s Court to answer for these offenses and was remanded into custody, given that he was already on bail for two pending cases of a similar nature.
The adjudication of those cases is scheduled for December 4.
Simultaneously, in the St. John’s Magistrates’ Court, O’Garro faces yet another charge, this time involving the defrauding of an individual out of $1000.
The allegation revolves around O’Garro purportedly taking money from an individual with the promise of renting a house, only to disappear with the funds and not delivering the key.
His plea in this matter is expected to be entered on November 23.
