Mason jailed for robbing Qualfon workers
A 29-year-old Mason was on Monday sentenced to four years imprisonment for robbing a busload of Qualfon workers in May 2017.
Quincy Clarke was found guilty of four counts of armed robbery by Magistrate Dylon Bess at the end of the trial at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court. He did not have legal representation.
The court heard that on May 12, 2017, at North East La Penitence, Georgetown, while in the company of others and armed with a gun, Clarke robbed the occupants of the Qualfon motor vehicle.
During the attack, he commanded the passengers to lie on the ground and relieved them of gold and silver jewellery, cellphones, a passport, cash and other items, totalling over $400,000 in value.
He was initially charged with 11 counts of armed robbery but only four persons showed up in court to testify against him; the remaining counts were dismissed.
Clarke was sentenced to four years jail on each of the four charges; the sentence will run concurrently.
