Construction worker slapped with attempted robbery charge
A construction worker of Amelia’s Ward, Linden has been remanded to prison on a charge of attempted armed robbery.
Thirty-one-year-old Denzil Bentick appeared on Thursday before Diamond/Golden Grove Magistrate Judy Latchman and was read the charge: attempt to commit a felony; to wit, robbery under arms. He pleaded not guilty.
Bentick is accused of committing the act against Ramlakhan Sookoo, called Kishore, at Loo Creek, Soesdyke-Linden Highway. He was arrested on March 18, 2023. He has been denied bail, and has been further remanded to prison. The matter has been adjourned to May 22, 2023 for trial.
Bentick is no stranger to the law. Back in 2016, he was sentenced to 36 months’ imprisonment after being found guilty of stealing a car. The defendant was convicted of stealing an AT 192 motor car at Potaro Road, Mackenzie, Linden.
Prior to that, Bentick was charged with a break and enter and larceny offence. (G12)
