A North Ruimveldt resident appeared before Magistrate Dylon Best at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on a charge of robbery under arms.
Kester Mcphoy pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that on October 1 at Georgetown, while armed with a knife, he robbed Freddie Yensingh of $53,200.
The prosecution had no objections to bail, but requested that the unrepresented defendant be placed on substantial bail, given the nature and prevalence of the offence.
As such, the Magistrate placed the defendant on $75,000 bail.
Mcphoy is scheduled to make his next court appearance on November 21, 2016 for reports and statements.
