Robber on phone charge remanded
A 50-year-old St Michael man was today remanded to HMP Dodds for robbery.
Winston Decourcey Clarke Jr of Marshall Gap, New Orleans, St Michael is accused of robbing Samuel Agard of a $300 cellular phone and $50 in cash.
The unemployed man pleaded not guilty when he appeared before Acting Chief Magistrate Douglas Frederick.
However, Prosecutor Sergeant Martin Rock objected to bail on the grounds that Clarke had 30 antecedents, some of which were for stealing. Rock also told the No 1 Magistrate Court that the virtual complainant needed protection from the accused.
Frederick accepted the grounds put forward by the lawman and ordered that Clarke be remanded until September 2.
