Local athlete charged with armed robbery, damaging Ex-lover’s $3.5M car
A 19-year-old National Footballer was on Wednesday hauled before Magistrate Faith McGusty charged with armed robbery and damage to property.
Jobe Caesar of Albouystown pleaded not guilty to the two charges and was remanded to prison until January 30, 2019.
It is alleged that on November 25, 2018, at Lot 178 Albert and Charlotte Street, he unlawfully and maliciously damaged a motor car valued $3.5M, the property of Jennifer Valdium.
It is further alleged that on the same date and location, Caesar was armed with a gun and robbed Valdium of a $30,000 cellphone.
Police Prosecutor Seon Blackman opposed to Caesar being released on bail on the grounds that he has another matter in the court where he is accused of assaulting the same victim.
News Room understands that the victim and the accused shared a relationship which subsequently ended, however, on the day in question, it alleged that Caesar showed up at the woman’s house with a gun.
He allegedly took away the keys to the car and her cell phone; he then drove the car into a nearby post after which he discharged several rounds at the vehicle.
Caesar plays for the Fruta Conquerors football team.
