A man and a woman were yesterday slapped with seven counts of robbery under arms at the New Amsterdam Magistrate Court.
Sylvester ‘Squeaky’ Joseph, 29, of Cumberland Village, East Canje and the wife of the mastermind behind the Canje robbery, Ashley Drigpaul, appeared before Magistrate Peter Hugh to answer to the seven charges.
It is alleged that on April 13, 2019, at New Area, Canefield, Canje, Joseph robbed Rohan Deonarine of three gold chains and an IPhone 6; Premchand Seelochan of two gold rings, one silver band and one wrist watch; Tarmattie Seelochan of $300,000, one gold ring and two cell phones; Aditie Rambhudan of nine gold rings, two gold bangles, three gold chains, a cricket band, $110,000
and a Samsung Galaxy S7; Andre Beerbhajan of one Toyota Allion, one IPhone, a gold chain, a silver band and $20,000 and Fizal Latiff of $10,000 and a Samsung Galaxy S5.
They were not required to plead to the indictable charge. They were not represented by an attorney and were remanded to prison until May 24, 2019.
