Two St. George’s residents facing charges of robbery with violence have been remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison at Richmond Hill after being denied bail at the St George’s Magistrate’s Court last week Friday.
Davison Harry of Corinth in St. David’s and Ryan ‘Satan’ Bowen from Mt. Parnassus, St. George are suspected of stealing items and cash amounting to approximately EC$1, 893.63 from the home of a Springs, St. George resident, on March 11.
The two suspects made their first appearance before Chief Magistrate, Her Honour Tamara Gill at the St. George’s No. 1 Magistrate’s Court last week Friday.
The Police Prosecution, led by Corporal of Police Terrence Andall objected to bail for the defendants pointing to the seriousness of the offence and the maximum 5-year penalty that can be applied if they are found guilty.
Harry was represented by attorney-at-Law Francis Williams, while Bowen, who is currently on bail for a similar offence, informed the court that he has retained the services of attorney-at-law, Peter David, who was not present at the sitting of the court.
The Chief Magistrate did not accede to the bail application moved by Attorney Francis for his client and took a decision to remand both suspects until April 3 and May 4 for mention, and May 15 for the continuation of the matter.
