Teenager denies gas station raid with fake gun

A teenager yesterday denied that he robbed a Pembroke gas station using an imitation firearm.

Samuel Taylor Jr, 17, pleaded not guilty to charges of robbery, use of an imitation firearm to commit an indictable offence and taking a motorcycle without consent.

All of the charges were linked to an incident on May 28 at the Rubis gas station on St John’s Road.

Mr Taylor, from Pembroke, was 16 at the time of the alleged offence.

The case is expected to return to the courts later this year.

It was one of several heard in the Supreme Court at the monthly arraignments session.

Charles Johnson, 64, made his first appearance on charges that he caused the death of Arthur Wales by driving under the influence of alcohol.

Mr Wales died after a collision that involved a truck on November 3, 2018 in St George’s.

Mr Johnson was not required to enter a plea. The case was adjourned until next month and the defendant was released on bail.

Jahmico Trott, 33, was given a January 18 trial date on a string of charges, including attempted murder, possession of an imitation firearm and use of a firearm in an indictable offence.

Mr Trott, who denies the offences, was remanded in custody.
