A 23-year-old Alexander Village, Georgetown, man was earlier today (Wednesday) sentenced to 10 years imprisonment when he appeared before Magistrate Faith McGusty at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to answer to two counts of armed robbery.
Nicholas Smith, a vendor, was found guilty on two armed robbery charges at the conclusion of his trial today.
In the first charge, the court heard that on February 11, 2018, on the Seawall Road, Smith, while being armed with a gun and accompanied by two other men, robbed Dexter David of a gold chain worth $60,000, a Samsung Galaxy cell phone worth $62,000 and $1,000 in cash.
The second charge stated that on the same day, the accused also robbed Kevin Ramlall of a gold chain, mobile phone and his wallet.
After Smith was arrested, he was positively identified by his victims.
Magistrate McGusty sentenced the accused to five years on each count of robbery under arms, which are to be served consecutively.
