A Police officer burst into tears on Monday after he was taken before the Georgetown Magistrates Courts slapped with one count of robbery.
Carthe Edeu, 33, called “Sticky”, of Lot 53 Lambert Street, Sophia, and Mazaruni, Bartica made his appearance before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.
Edeu pleaded not guilty to the offence which alleged that on January 1, 2016 at Baramita, Essequibo, he robbed Michael Elliot of G$16,000 and two silver bangles valued G$60,000.
The defendant told the court that on the day in question he was called and told of the offence of which he had no knowledge.
However, Elliot told the court that the defendant tied him up and knocked him unconscious after which he made off with the articles.
Prosecutor Jones objected to bail due to the gravity of the offence and to the fact that violence was used.
The defendant was placed in the custody of the Guyana Police Force and the matter was adjourned to August 15 at the Bartica Magistrate’s Court.
