Four men charged with Marigot Credit Union robbery
Four young men from Portsmouth have been remanded for the armed robbery of the Marigot Credit Union.
Mitchel Joseph, Jamie Andrew, Princeton George and Mitchel Azille faced six indictable charges; conspiring to rob, entering as trespassers, and robbing the Marigot Credit Union in addition to three charges of attempted murder of two police officers and one corporal.
The four men were alleged to have robbed the credit union of US $1174, Euro $260, EC $ 32,921 totaling EC$ 3685.45.
They were also charged with possession of a firearm without a license, the weapon in question being a 14 gauge shotgun to which all four pleaded not guilty.
Public prosecutor Claude Weekes objected to bail on several grounds that included the fact that certain firearms and ammunition used in the robbery are still missing, substantial amounts of cash yet to be recovered by the police and investigations so far suggest the participation of other accomplices in the robbery.
Magistrate Candia George denied bail and the trial for the possession of firearms without license was adjourned 13th June 2012 in Marigot and disclosure is set 30th of April.
