Friday, November 21, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Damian Leslie and Norman Tillett are charged with the robbery of over $4,000 from an employee of A&R Store, located at mile 1 on Phillip Goldson Highway.
They appeared today before the Chief Magistrate, Anne Marie Smith and not guilty to the charge.
The prosecutor objected to bail on the grounds that the offence has become prevalent, that the prosecution has a strong case and that if granted bail the defendants might interfere with witnesses.
Chief Magistrate Smith upheld the objection and she remanded Leslie and Tillet into custody until January 28, 2015.
Yesterday, Thursday, the employee reported to the police that he was at the bus stop at Pallotti High School when he was approached by two men who stole the deposit money from him.
Police recovered the money later the same day.
