Bail revoked for alleged housebreaking ring leader
A magistrate yesterday revoked the bail of a man who police claim led a housebreaking ring that operated in southwestern New Providence.
David Cooper-Cunningham, 32, of Lifebuoy Street, was only accused of one housebreaking charge when he appeared before Magistrate Derence Rolle-Davis yesterday.
Police allege that Cooper-Cunningham broke into the Bacardi Road home of Harvey Cash and stole jewelry worth just under $1,000.
He pleaded not guilty to the charges. Prosecutor Sergeant Godfrey Brennen objected to bail because Cooper-Cunningham was already on bail for murder and armed robbery charges at the time of his arrest.
Cooper-Cunningham, whose street name is “Crocket”, also appeared before Rolle-Davis for the continuation of several of those armed robbery cases. Police allege he committed the offenses along with Timothy Cole.
Cooper-Cunningham, Cole and Franklyn Edgecombe are also charged with the December 2009 murder of Darron Farrington at Strachan’s Corner.
Cooper-Cunningham was on bail for three other murder charges before the most recent accusations were made against him.
