Labourer remanded for alleged robbery


DEXTER Forde, a 25-year-old Labourer, was, yesterday, May 13, 2019, remanded by Chief Magistrate Ann Mc Lenann at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court for allegedly stealing a quantity of items, while being armed with a gun.

The father of one who resides at Lot 35 West Ruimveldt pleaded not guilty to the charge which read that, on March 19, 2019, at Sideline Dam, La Penitence, while being armed with a gun, he robbed Raz Ghani of one black Alcatel cellphone valued $5500, one bird stage worth $6000, $25,000 cash, one haversack valued $2000 and 1 pair of slippers worth $4500.

In the court yesterday, Prosecutor Aduni Innis objected to bail, due to the fact that a dangerous weapon was used in the incident and the defendant was positively identified.
Forde was remanded to prison until his next appearance on May 20, 2019.
