Accomplice in botched Liliendaal robbery remanded
A 23-year-old convict, who was wounded on August 29, 2017 on the railway embankment after he and his now dead accomplice attempted to rob a 42-year-old Interior Flight Services Supervisor, has been remanded to prison.
A police report stated that the accused, Mark Griffith of 31 Sheet Anchor, Canje, Berbice was charged with two counts of robbery under arms when he appeared before Magistrate Seepaul-Ally at the Sparendaam Magistrates’ Courts on Monday.
He was not required to plead to the indictable charges. According to the police, Griffith was previously charged in absentia for armed robbery by a Berbice Magistrate earlier this year.
His accomplice, 24-year-old Trydon Munroe of New Amsterdam, Berbice, a former Prison Officer, was shot dead on August 29, by a security escort after they attempted to rob the supervisor who went to the Ogle Airport and collected several parcels.
Griffith managed to escape on foot but was later placed under police guard when he visited the Georgetown Public Hospital for treatment.
