TWO men, including an ex-policeman, were on Friday charged with armed robbery that was committed on a miner on Old Year’s Day.

Shawn Archibald, a 38-year-old construction worker and Timothy Waldron, a 29-year-old ex-policeman, both residents of Unity Place, South Ruimveldt appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan and denied the allegation.

Ex-cop Timothy Waldron

Particulars of the charge state that on December 31 at Republic Avenue, McKenzie, Linden, the duo while being armed with a gun robbed Trevor Campbell of five gold chains valued $740,000.

The men pleaded not guilty to the charge and their attorney Melville Duke made an application for bail.
Duke during his submission, told the court that there was a party in Linden and a brawl erupted where the victim’s gold chain was pulled off his neck.

Police Prosecutor, Sumeil Evans objected to the pair being released on bail since there was an ongoing investigation against the men and more charges were likely to be laid.
The magistrate remanded the men and transferred the matter to the Linden Magistrate’s Court for February 6.

The men were then taken before Magistrate Fabayo Azore to answer to more charges.
Archibald was charged for being armed with a gun on January 1, at West Ruimveldt, and robbing Roy Jaundoo of two gold chains along with an iPhone totalling $406,000.
He was further charged for using a fake number plate on motor vehicle PTT 233 on December 5, at Festival City knowing same to be false.

He denied both of the charges and was remanded to prison until February 2.
Meanwhile, Waldron was charged for using a fake number plate on PTT 1946, knowing same to be false. He pleaded not guilty to the charge and was granted $156,000 bail and the matter adjourned until February 2.

The ex-cop, following his appearance before two separate magistrates in the city, was then taken to the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court to face a charge for the theft of a motor vehicle. The vehicle was hijacked during an armed robbery at Better Hope on the East Coast of Demerara on December 30, 2017.
