Teen charged with home invasion in Lamaha Springs
Nineteen-year-old Kris Fernandez was remanded to prison on Wednesday, January 10, 2018, by Magistrate Fabayo Azore for the brazen armed home invasion committed on two women at their Lamaha Springs, Georgetown home last December.
It is alleged that he and another person, armed with guns, on December 13, 2017, robbed Jacqueline Percival of a quantity of gold jewellery valued $456,000 at Lamaha Springs, Georgetown.
It is further alleged that he robbed Elizabeth Percival of three cellphones, a television set, a quantity of gold jewellery and other items totalling $2.7M.
The unrepresented ‘C’ Field Sophia resident denied both of charges and was remanded to prison until January 31, 2018.
According to reports, on the day in question, 52-year-old Jacqueline Percival, a teacher and 50-year-old Elizabeth Percival, a Programme Assistant at the United Nations, were asleep when the defendant along with others, broke into their home, through the Eastern door, held them at gunpoint, bound their hands with scotch tape and relieved them of several items. Two of the men were armed.
After the gunmen escaped, Jacqueline managed to untie herself and released Elizabeth.
