Samuel Forde

An Albouystown teen was yesterday released on $100,000 bail after being charged with two counts of armed robbery.

The first charge stated that Samuel Forde, 18, on July 16th at Georgetown, while in the company of others, armed with a knife robbed Sarah Browne of a handbag and $58,000 in cash.

It was also alleged that Forde on the same date robbed Nicholas Browne of a cellphone valued at $98,000.

Forde pleaded not guilty to both charges

The prosecutor objected to bail being granted based on the serious nature of the offence and the fact that a weapon was used.

Magistrate Fabayo Azore released the teen on a total of $100,000 bail, then adjourned the matter until September 26th.
