Judge refuses suspect’s request for removal of electronic monitoring device

A judge on Wednesday denied a request from a man on bail for attempted murder and armed robbery to remove his electronic monitoring device.

Arion McKenzie appeared before Justice Cheryl Grant-Thompson for a bail variation.

According to McKenzie, the tracking device was affecting his job at a window and door supplier.

McKenzie said that he had previously worked in the field but was relegated to the warehouse because he assumed that a client had seen his electronic monitoring device.

However, the prosecutor said that the employer said that there were no issues with McKenzie wearing an ankle bracelet.

The prosecutor suggested that McKenzie wore pants that covered his device while at work.

Grant-Thompson agreed that there were no grounds to remove the ankle monitor.
