Labourer accused of robbing delivery man further remanded

Three months after a North Ruimveldt labourer was charged in connection with several armed robberies, he was further remanded to prison by Magistrate Leron Daly when he made another court appearance at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Friday.
According to Magistrate Daly, no special reasons were given for the defendant to be granted his pre-trial liberty.
It is alleged that on January 7, 2019, at West Ruimveldt, Georgetown, while being armed with a gun, Seon Goodluck robbed Jason Busbury of one Honda XR motorcycle with registration number CJ 4339 valued $435,000.
It was further alleged that on January 9, 2019, at West Ruimveldt, Georgetown, he fraudulently imitated registration number CJ 7296 on one Honda XR motorcycle, which is registered with CJ 4339.
On his first appearance, he pleaded not guilty to both charges after they were read to him by Principal Magistrate Sherdel Marcus-Isaacs.
The court was told that on the day in question, the defendant contacted Pizza Hut delivery service and made an order. The court heard that upon Busbury’s arrival at the location, the defendant pulled out a gun from his waistband and relieved him of his motorcycle and escaped.
Days after the robbery, the victim saw Goodluck’s photo in the media after he was charged with several armed robberies and immediately went to the Police and informed them that it was the same man who had robbed him. As such, charges were instituted.
The Prosecutor objected to bail on the grounds that the defendant has several matters of similar nature, pending before the courts.
During December 2018, Goodluck was also slapped with four armed robbery charges and was placed on remand for those matters. He was instructed to make his next court appearance on April 1, 2019.
