An Albouystown mason was yesterday remanded to prison on multiple charges of armed robbery stemming from gunpoint attacks in the vicinity of South Ruimveldt.
Adrian Daly, 37, of Lot 30 King Edward Street, Albouystown, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in a Georgetown court, where he was read six charges of armed robbery. He was not required to enter a plea to any of the charges.
The first charge alleged that Daly, on June 24, at South Ruimveldt Gardens, while being in the company of others and armed with a gun, robbed Chen Hai Hang of $200,000, 30 $220 Digicel phone cards and 30 $500 Digicel phone cards, all carrying a total value of $221,600 and which were the property of Lui Hui Jun.
The second charge stated that on June 24, at Aubrey Barker Road, South Ruimveldt, Daly, in the company of others and armed with a gun, robbed Tonika Wills of a Samsung Galaxy phone, worth $55,000, and a gold chain valued at $15,000.
The third charge said that on June 24, at Aubrey Barker Road, South Ruimveldt, Daly, being in company of others and armed with a gun, robbed Iana Daniels of a Samsung Galaxy phone, valued at $50,000.
It was further stated that on that same day and at the same place, he robbed Elizabeth Barclay of $600, while armed with a gun and in the company of others.
It was too alleged that on June 24, at South Ruimveldt, he, along with others, robbed Tiffany Brannum at gunpoint of a Samsung Galaxy phone, valued at $36,000.
Finally, it was heard that on June 24, at South Ruimveldt, he robbed Julisa Wills of a Blu cellphone worth $20,000.
Prosecutor Deniro Jones objected to bail due to the gravity of the offence and the penalty it attracts. He also stated that no items have been recovered by the police, who are also to lay other charges against Daly.
The Chief Magistrate remanded Daly to prison until his next court appearance, citing the prosecution’s objections, and the fact that a gun was allegedly used in the course of the robberies. He is set to make his next court appearance on July 18 for report.
