First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Two teenagers yesterday appeared in court charged with a string of armed robberies.

Jaron Roberts, 19, and Kamrone Whiting, 18, are accused of using an imitation firearm in robberies and attempted robberies on March 14 and 15.

The offences are said to have occurred in three different parishes.

The two were not required to enter a plea as their case must be heard in Supreme Court.

Mr Whiting, of no fixed abode, was additionally charged with attempting to enter a dwelling on Old Road, in Hamilton Parish, on February 24. He denied the offence.

Crown counsel Kirsty-Ann Kiellor read out a total of 13 charges, starting with the March 14 theft of a bag in St George's.

Mr Roberts, who is from St George's, is accused of taking a bag owned by Gregor Reid.

Mr Whiting is charged with receiving stolen goods, including an Olympus digital camera, to the value of $995.

Both are charged with using a firearm to rob Luz Maria Lorhan in Pembroke of a bike box containing cash, a BlackBerry phone, a Mexican passport and personal items. They are also accused of attempting to rob Joseph Daos in Devonshire.

They are further charged with robbing Jesse Pradey of a crash helmet; attempting to rob Jackson Mark Kernion, and robbing Jeffrey Cowan of 72 Bermudian dollars and 30 Canadian dollars on March 15.

The offences are said to have occurred in Warwick and allegedly involved an imitation gun.

The teenagers face an additional charge of using an imitation firearm for an attempted robbery in Pembroke, and threatening a person in Paget with the intention of causing alarm.

They were represented by Mark Pettingill, who was standing in for Marc Daniels.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner remanded both men into custody. They will return to court on March 28.
