Chris Pollard, 19, who is before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court for a series of armed robbery charges, was on Monday remanded to prison for a similar charge.
Pollard of Durban Street, Lodge, appeared before Principal Magistrate Sherdel Isccas-Marcus and pleaded not guilty to the charge which alleged that on September 13,2019 at Camp Street, while being in the company of others he robbed Sachin Narine of a cell phone valued at $45,000.
According to reports, on the day in question, the victim was walking along Camp Street, while on his cell phone when Pollard and others snatched his cell phone and said ” don’t do nothing before we do you something!”
Police on patrol observed and gave chase, arresting Pollard.
He was searched and the phone was recovered in his possession.
Police prosecutor Quinn Harris objected to Pollard being released on bail since the defendant has pending matters before the court.
The Magistrate upheld the prosecutor’s objection and remanded Pollard to prison until October 7,2019.
In August, Pollard was released on $20,000 bail by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan stealing a woman’s $45,000 cellphone while she was sitting in a route 40 minibus along Croal Street, Georgetown,
In March, Pollard was slapped with five robbery charges after he allegedly went on a “phone snatching spree” along Croal Street, Georgetown.
In January, Pollard was charged before a City Magistrate for a similar offence and was released on $40,000 bail.
