Albouystown man returns to jail on three armed robbery charges
A man, who was recently released from prison, found himself before the court again on Monday, this time on three armed robbery charges.
Jamal Hicks, 20, of James Street, Albouystown, appeared before City Magistrate Leron Daly and pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Particulars of the first charge alleged that on July 4th, at James Street, while being in the company of another and armed with a gun, Hicks robbed Anthony Narine of a gold chain, a cell phone and cash, totalling $242,000.
The second charge alleged that on June 27, at Louisa Row, Georgetown while being armed with a weapon, he robbed Donna Barry of a cell phone, her handbag, and documents, valued $88,500.
The third charge alleged that on the same date and location, Hicks robbed Rudolph Barry of a bicycle, cellphone, and other items, amounting to $74,000.
Prosecutor Annalisa Brummell objected to Hicks being released on bail on the grounds that he was recently released from prison after serving a 12-month sentence for a similar matter.
The prosecutor also told the Court that Hicks was positively identified by Donna and Rudolph Barry, who lived in the same area with him.
The Magistrate ruled in favour of the prosecution and remanded Hicks to prison until August 23.
