Bail denied

Alleged bank robber wants out of prison

A man accused of robbing a bank took issue today with the fact that acting Station Sergeant Neville Watson was still objecting to him getting bail.

When Malcolm Marlon Archer reappeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court, he made a bail application before Magistrate Douglas Frederick.

The 20-year-old, of Lowthers Hill, Christ Church, is charged with entering the Bank of Nova Scotia in Black Rock, St Michael and stealing $13 956 and US$308 while having a gun at the time.

He also faces a November 2014 charge of robbing William Francis of a $5 005 chain.

“Right now, it is just an allegation. This is a bailable offence Sir,” Archer told Magistrate Frederick.

“I want to know if you all plan to keep me in prison for a couple years on remand before the case start, cause right now cases taking a while to get off the ground.”

When the magistrate reminded him that he has a serious charge of robbing a bank while having a firearm and would have to apply to the High Court for bail, Archer replied: “So aggravated burglary is not bailable at the lower court?”

    Rob a Bank and seeking bail ! Who in their right mind would give him bail ? The only bail he could want is a BALE of hay to sleep on at Dodds, so that he would sneeze non stop
