[www.inewsguyana.com] – Nineteen – year-old George Scott and 18 – year – old Shamar Singh, accused of two counts of armed robbery, appeared before City Magistrate, Judy Latchman and denied the charges.
It is alleged that Scott of Hadfield Street, Georgetown and Singh of Lot 67 Durban Street, Lodge Georgetown on November 01, 2015 in Georgetown, while being in the company of others and being armed with a cutlass, robbed Jeremy Jarvis of one haversack, one dress shirt and one cellular phone, the total value of $31,000.
It is also alleged that on the same day, the duo also robbed Chris Forde of $2,000 cash.
In light of the seriousness of the offense, the Prosecution objected to bail; citing the fact that a dangerous weapon was used during the commission of the robberies.
However, the Attorney for both accused explained to the court that the offence is a bail-able one; as such he asked for reasonable bail on behalf of the duo. Magistrate Latchman denied bail and the two are slated to reappear in court on November 12.
