A vendor who operates a stall at Bourda Market was today charged and released on bail for allegedly robbing a man of a phone valued at $77,000.

Twenty-one-year-old Simeon Truman of 564 ‘B’ Field, South Sophia, appeared before Principal Magistrate Faith McGusty in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that on June 21, 2019, at De Abreu Street, Georgetown, he robbed Kareen Adams of a phone valued at $77,000, which was the property of the said Adams. Truman was represented by attorney-at-law Tiffany Jeffrey who asked that her client be released on reasonable bail. The lawyer told the court that her client, who is the sole breadwinner of his family, was never placed on an identification parade.

While Police Prosecutor Annalisa Brummell did not disclose facts in the matter, she asked that conditions be attached. With no objections being raised by the Prosecutor, Truman was released on $75,000 bail.

He was instructed to report every Friday to Brickdam Police Station until the hearing and determination of trial. The father of one is expected to make his next court appearance on July 24.
