Mechanic gets bail on attempted robbery charge

A mechanic was yesterday granted $200,000 bail after he was accused of attempting to rob a man using a cutlass.

Magistrate Dylon Bess yesterday read the attempted robbery charge to Maxwell George, 39, of 304 Castello Housing Scheme.

It is alleged that George, on September 8th, at Albert Street, Alberttown, attempted to rob Randy Bourne, while armed with a cutlass and in company of another who was armed with a knife.

George denied the allegation levelled against him.

The prosecutor objected to bail being granted, citing the nature of the charge and the fact that a weapon was used.

Magistrate Bess, however, granted the accused his release on $200,000 bail and ordered that he Report to the Kitty Police Station every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 4 pm.

The matter was then adjourned until October 26th.

On Monday, Teshaka Bobb was charged with committing the same crime. He was, however, remanded to prison and is set to make his next court appearance on September 24th.
