Alleged robber remanded in custody
A St George’s man accused of robbery, theft and depriving a man of his personal liberty has been remanded in custody.
Appearing in Magistrates’ Court this morning, Robert Green was charged with six offences, including trespassing at a home on Highwood Lane in Paget and stealing $1,500, as well as damaging part of the house on January 27. The 38-year-old was also accused of trespassing at the same house with intent to steal on January 30.
He was furthermore charged with depriving Jeremy Lodge of his personal liberty on the same date and using force to rob Mr Lodge of ATM cards, house keys, motorcycle keys and $500 in cash.
Mr Green was also charged with taking a motorcycle without consent on the same date and stealing $3,000 in cash belonging to Mr Lodge from ATMs in Pembroke, Paget and Warwick.
He was not required to enter a plea because the charges are indictable and must be heard in Supreme Court.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo remanded Mr Green in custody and set the matter down for the March arraignments session.
