A 38-year-old Castello Housing Scheme, Georgetown resident who allegedly robbed a Meten-Meer-Zorg, West Coast Demerara supermarket proprietress of a sum of cash last weekend was on Wednesday admitted to the charge and will be sentenced tomorrow.

Seon Yaw was charged with robbery under arms and unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition. He appeared in the Leonora Magistrate’s Court before Magistrate Rochelle Liverpool.

Yaw pleaded guilty to the offences and the matter was postponed to tomorrow for sentencing.

Yaw was apprehended by the police and public-spirited citizens on Saturday afternoon, shortly after he allegedly entered the supermarket while being armed with a handgun and carried out the brazen daylight robbery.

The robbery took place around 14.30hrs. Following his arrest, an unlicensed special revolver with four live rounds was allegedly found on Yaw’s possession.

The stolen cash was also recovered.
