Church’s Fast Food robbery accused remanded overnight


POLICE have charged Randy Morris, 32, of Lot 263 East La Penitence, in connection with the recent robbery at Church’s Fast Food Restaurant in Bourda Market, Georgetown. He appeared before Magistrate Hazel Octive-Hamilton yesterday, facing an indictable charge that said, on May 20, being armed with a gun, he robbed Gregory De Grammes of $2.2M belonging to the business.
Attorney-at-law, Mr. Gordon Gilhuys, for the defence, making the request for bail, said the accused has similar cases before other courts which granted him.
The lawyer claimed that the police would, always, arrest Morris whenever such a crime is committed.
But Police Corporal Simone Payne, prosecuting, objected to the grant, confirming that the accused is, indeed, facing several other similar charges and she maintained her objection, based on the prevalence and seriousness of the offence.
The magistrate upheld the opposition, pointing out that the prisoner was in front of her previously on more than one robbery under arms charges.
The accused will make another court appearance today.
