As the trial into the July 9, 2015 home invasion and robbery of Land Court Judge, Nicola Pierre and her husband Mohamed Chand, dead bandit, Rolston Morrison aka “Sadam”, has been identified as the one that summoned the getaway car moments after the brazen attack.
Premnauth Samaroo, Damien Millington, 22, of Lot 118 Caesar Street, Agricola; Nicholas Narine, 18, also of Caesar Street Agricola; Anthony David, 28, of 63 Hadfield Street, Stabroek and Warren Mc Kenzie, 22, of Lot 18 Brutus Street, Agricola are currently before the Court for the robbery and home invasion, as well as an additional charge of discharging a loaded firearm at security guard, Ron Peters.
The men, who are all on remand, are all denying any association with the robbery. The matter is being tried before Magistrate Zamina Ally Seepaul at the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court.
On Tuesday, Detective Inspector Suraj Singh, who is stationed at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Eve Leary and is attached to the Major Crimes Investigation Unit, took to the stand where he revealed that David, who is one of the robbery accused, was questioned by him, but refused to give a written statement.
He went on to state that during the questioning, the accused told him that on the night in question, Morrison had contacted him in a wound up state and asked him to pick up him and some other men from the Montrose area.
He recalled the accused telling him, “Sadam called me and tell me that they deh pun a wuk up in Montrose. And how people shooting at them. And that he want me to come and collect them. So meh guh up and collect them and drop them to Agricola. Meh had to mek two trips and me aint get no money cause them tell me that they had to run away and leave the things.”
The Magistrate adjourned the matter for Friday where a void dire will be held to iron out a few legal technicalities.
