Twenty-six-year-old Levon Cameron along with his alleged accomplice Kevin Watson, appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly last week at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts after they were slapped with a joint charge of armed robbery.
The duo denied the charge which stated that on December 25 at Dowding Street, Kitty, Georgetown while being together and armed with a knife, they robbed Mahadeo Sookraj of a LG cellular phone valued $40,000.
Cameron was represented by Attorney Stanley Moore, who in a bail application informed the court that his client has no previous convictions, nor is he a flight risk.
Meanwhile, Watson who was unrepresented, faced another charge which he also denied. That charge stated that on December 27, at the East Ruimveldt Police Outpost while being in custody for the offence of robbery under arms, he escaped from said custody.
Police Prosecutor Sanj Singh, objected to Watson being granted bail on the grounds that he has other pending matters of a similar nature in another court. However, no objections were made to Cameron being granted bail.
As a result, Magistrate Daly placed Cameron on $40,000 bail while Watson was remanded. The case will continue on 25, 2019.
