A construction worker was remanded to prison yesterday after he was charged with two armed robberies.

City magistrate Judy Latchman read the charges to Dexter Wray.

It was alleged that on September 2, at Houston Public Road, Wray, in the company of another and armed with a gun, robbed Roxanne John of a shoulder bag, a phone, an umbrella and a pair of shades, along with $13,000 and $18,000 in cash and $4,000 in keys, which were the property of Vic Oditt.

The stolen items had a total value of $50,500.

The other charge stated that on the same date and at the very location, Wray, in company of another and armed with a gun, robbed Mark Josiah of $25,000.

Wray, of 95 Second Street, Agricola, denied both charges.

Attorney Paul Fung-A-Fat, who represented him, requested that he be granted bail. But prosecutor Shawn Gonsalves objected to bail being granted, citing the seriousness of the crime and the fact that a firearm was allegedly used. As a result, Wray was subsequently remanded to prison and the proceedings were adjourned until September 25.
