Jamal Seymour, a 26-year-old carpenter of Lot 176 Campbell and Sussex Street, Albouystown and Ryan Goodluck, a 29-year-old vendor of Lot 928 Herstelling, East Bank Demerara, were charged today with the offence of robbery under arms
The two suspects in the armed robbery of a Chinese-owned supermarket at Lusignan last week were arrested on August 30.
About 10:30hrs this morning, both accused appeared at the Vigilance Magistrate’s Court before Magistrate R. Liverpool, where the charge was read to them.
They pleaded not guilty and were granted bail in the sum of $150,000 each.
The prosecutor objected to bail on the grounds of the seriousness and prevalence of the offence. He told the court that the two accused do not live on the East Coast nor have any social activities or ties there. He also said that there was video evidence and confession evidence and highlighted that the accused were previously charged with a matter pending at the Sparendaam Magistrates’ Court.
The magistrate told the prosecutor that those were not enough grounds and granted bail to the two accused. The case was postponed until November 6, 2023 for report.
