Three notorious bandits, who all have numerous matters pending before the court and are all out on
bail have been remanded to jail.
The men Raymond La Fleur, 39, of Vryheid and Mount Sinai, West Canje, Berbice; Timothy Sampson, 29, of Adelphi Village, East Canje Berbice; and Troyden Trellis, 20, called ‘Old Boy’, of Timmers Dam, Angoy’s Avenue, appeared on Wednesday before Magistrate Rhondell Weaver at the Fort Wellington Magistrates Court on a charge of attempt to commit a felony.
The men are accused of attempting to rob businessman Feroze Haffese of Lot 9 Cotton Tree, West Coast Berbice.
According to Prosecutor Corporal, Rocquel Mars, the men had travelled to the area in a motor car and around 02:50 hours on the day in question they attempted to break into the premises. However the premises had CCTV cameras and alarms which went off as the bandits were in the process of breaking into the building. The alarm forced them to abort their mission and flee the area. The getaway vehicle was also captured on the CCTV camera.
The vehicle was tracked down and the driver nabbed. He subsequently informed police about the notorious gang members and some others who are still at large. The men were subsequently arrested.
La Fleur who is before the court on a number of charges was sentenced in his absence to five years in jail. He was subsequently nabbed and jailed, but appealed his conviction in the High Court and was granted bail.
Sampson has been charged with a number of misdemeanors including murder, possession of two AK47s and an UZI submachine gun. He was also charged with being a gang of eight that attacked and robbed a No.48 village family, and subsequently engaged a police patrol in a shootout.
Trellis was among a gang of three that invaded a business man’s premises in New Amsterdam last November while armed with a gun and cutlass. One of the bandits was severely chopped by the businessman, while Trellis and the other fled leaving the gun behind. They were subsequently nabbed in a New Amsterdam hotel a few days later with some teen girls.
The prosecution objected to bail due to the men all having serious matters engaging the court.
They have been remanded to jail until July 11.
