Magistrate grants two months adjournment in daylight robbery case


Two 15-year-old boys, who were charged earlier this year with a daring daylight robbery outside of the FirstCaribbean International Bank in Kingstown are scheduled to return to court on June 6, 2017.

The teenagers, who are from Vermont and Richland Park respectively, have been charged with being armed with a firearm and robbing two PH Veira & Co Ltd employees of items and cash valued at EC$36,950.

One of the boys is also charged separately with conspiracy to commit robbery.

When they reappeared before the Serious Offences Court on Tuesday, senior prosecutor Adolphus Delpesche asked for a two-month adjournment, as the firearms expert who is expected to testify in the case is out of state on a training course.

“I always like to start with the experts,” said Delpesche.

Lawyer Israel Bruce, who represents one of the teens, made no objection to the adjournment.

Dennis Richardson, a 23-year-old Glen resident, was also charged in

relation to the robbery a

few days after the two teens appeared before the court.

Richardson, who is being represented by Ronald Marks, had been given bail, but that was revoked on March 20, 2017, when he was further charged in relation to a firearm and three 12-gauge cartridges. (AS)
