Five persons were yesterday remanded to prison after they appeared in court charged with the Phone Depot robbery on Saturday afternoon.
The men, Corwin Heywood, Leon Watson, Wayne Isaacs, Ulric London and Dwayne Graham, were all accused of robbing Phone Depot on April 3. The men who were unrepresented plead not guilty to the charge.
A second charge stated that Leon Watson had in his possession one semi automatic Uzi machine gun on April 3. It was further alleged that Watson had in his possession 30 live rounds of .380 ammunition. He pleaded not guilty to the ensuing charges.
Police Prosecutor Shellon Daniels objected to bail on all the matters. She asked the magistrate to fix a trial date for the defendants.
That application was granted and the defendants were remanded to prison and ordered to make their next court appearance on July 19.
Armed bandits stormed the Phone Depot on Middle Street on Saturday making off with several laptop computers, cellular phones and digital cameras. The attack took place around 15:00 hours.
The bandits, brandishing guns, ordered the employees of the facility as well as customers to lie on the floor and then proceeded to force open several glass cases which contained the items.
Acting on information, the police went to two city taxi services and arrested two drivers who not only took the gunmen to the scene but who also waited on them and facilitated their escape.
The police raided houses in Tucville and Sussex Street and found most of the articles removed from Phone Depot.
