A labourer who was charged just a few days ago in connection to several armed robberies was this morning slapped with another armed robbery charge after he allegedly placed an order for a large pizza, only to steal the deliveryman’s bike upon the arrival of the order.
Seon Goodluck, 23, a labourer of North Ruimveldt, Georgetown is accused of pointing a gun to the face of Jason Busbury, a pizza hut employee, and stealing the man’s bike.
It is alleged that Goodluck, on January 7, 2019, at West Ruimveldt, Georgetown, while armed with a gun, robbed Jason Busbury of one Honda XR motorcycle with registration number CJ 4339 valued $435,000.
It was further alleged that on January 9, 2019, at West Ruimveldt, Georgetown, he fraudulently imitated registration number CJ 7296 on one Honda XR motorcycle, which is registered with CJ 4339.
He pleaded not guilty to both charges after they were read to him by Principal Magistrate Sherdel Marcus- Isaacs.
Facts presented by Police Prosecutor, Annalisa Brummell stated that on the day in question the defendant contacted Pizza Hut delivery service and made an order. The court heard that upon Busbury’s arrival the defendant pulled out a gun from his waistband and relieved the victim of his motorcycle and made good his escape.
Days after the robbery, the victim saw Goodluck’s photo in the media after he was charged with several armed robberies and he went and reported the matter to the police.
Hence the new charges were instituted.
The Prosecutor made serious objections to bail being granted to Goodluck citing that he has several matters in courts.
Just two weeks ago, Goodluck was slapped with four armed robbery charges when he appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly.
He is currently on remand for those matters. He was instructed to make his next court appearance on February 20, 2019.
