Duo remanded for $13.1M robbery


Two known felons were hauled before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly Friday accused of breaking into the Bissan’s trading store and stealing over $13.1M in cash.

Patrick Smith, a 28-year-old sailor of Curtis Street, Albouystown and Lincoln Trotman, a 25-year-old miner of Guyhoc Park, were jointly charged.

They pleaded not guilty and did not have legal representation.

It is alleged that they broke into the store between January 10, 2019, and January 11, 2019, at King Street, Georgetown.

Police Prosecutor Sanj Singh told the court that both men were previously charged and convicted for similar matters.

The court was also informed that both men also have pending matters of a similar nature before the same Magistrate.

The Prosecutor objected to bail on the grounds that they are known characters to the Police and are repeat offenders.

They were remanded to prison until February 11, 2019.

The men are accused of torching the safe and stealing the money. Police received intelligence and arrested the duo; they were reportedly found with $410,000 of the suspected stolen money.
