Trinidad Express:- A man will be going to court on Friday charged with stealing his wife jewelry.

The Chaguanas incensed when he sold the jewels without her permission, police say.

The man, from New Settlement Caroni Savannah Road, Chaguanas, has since been charged with larceny of $10,000 in jewellery and is expected to appear before a Chaguanas Magistrate.

The man was held on Tuesday by Chaguanas police after the woman made a report that her jewellery had been stolen.

The police were notified and Constable Maharaj was tasked to conduct inquiries which led to the detention of the 44-year-old man, who was subsequently charged.

    Incidents involving criminal acts against one’s spouse, whether or not married or divorced are always prosecutable.

    Not sure that the practice for Police to charge a spouse with ‘…Property-Related offences’ while still married and without the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

    Are the pawn-shop operators to be charged with ‘…Receiving Stolen Property as well?’
    Seems that this is heading to nowhere.

    Those nations with ‘…British Jurisprudence’ know this.

    If there is a law that expressly states that, well this ‘…Spouse could be eating souse at the Golden Grove Penitentiary.’
