Businessman remanded for fraud, armed robbery
A 25-year-old man of South East Cummings Lodge, East Coast Demerara (ECD) was remanded to prison on Thursday for several offences.
Andrew Samaroo appeared at the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court where he was jointly charged with Leon Lewis, 31, a salesman of Lamaha Springs, South Ruimveldt, Georgetown, with fraudulent imitation of an identification mark on a motor vehicle.
Samaroo appeared before Magistrate R. Liverpool and pleaded not guilty when the charge was read to him. The magistrate refused bail and Andrew was remanded to prison until March 07, 2022.
An order is to be prepared for Lewis to answer to the charge since he was remanded previously on another matter.
Samaroo was also jointly charged with Ravin Singh, a 24-year-old mechanic of Montrose, ECD. This matter was also heard in the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court. Samaroo and Singh were charged with conspiracy to defraud which was committed on Tyrone Pires.
While Singh was granted $200,000 bail, bail was denied for Samaroo.
Meanwhile, Samaroo also appeared at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court on Thursday where he was charged with armed robbery.
He was not required to plea and was remanded on this charge until February 22.
Samaroo was arrested on February 7, after a wanted bulletin was issued for him by the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU).
