MichaelFormer policeman Michael Diaz, 26, appeared in Magistrate’s Court on February 20th accused once again for snatching a woman’s gold chain from around her neck.

Diaz appeared unrepresented before Magistrate Roberto Ordonez in Court #2 where he was read a single charge of theft. He pleaded not guilty to the charge. The court prosecutor objected to bail on the grounds that he has a previous conviction for a similar offense and that he also has a similar charge pending trial before the court. He was asked in court to give a good reason why the court should grant him bail and that’s when Diaz told the court that he is presently working.  Its a job he says he recently got and he didn’t want to lose it.  He is the father of two children.  He also told the court that he had begged the police for an identification parade but they refused to give him one since the victim clams she know him.  He was then granted bail in the sum of 2 thousand dollars.

It’s reported that on Wednesday, February 15, Diaz snatched a $1,500 gold chain from around the neck of Natasha Nicholson.

He was in court on Friday, February 17 on another matter where that case was adjourned for a later date.  That’s when police arrested him and took him into custody on this latest theft charge.
