A man 47-year-old man was remanded to HMP Dodds today, while a 41-year-old woman with whom he was jointly charged secured $3,000 bail.
Michael Anthony Brathwaite, of no fixed place of abode, and Sharon Charmaine James, of Bedford Lane, Roebuck Street, St Michael, are both accused of robbing Basil Whitehead of a chain and pendant worth $10,000 and a $1,400 watch on April 7.
The two were not required to plead to the indictable charge which was read out to them by Magistrate Douglas Frederick.
However, Sergeant Edwin Pinder objected to their bail, based on the serious nature of the offence and on the grounds that two other persons were being sought in connection with the crime. The prosecutor also revealed that Brathwaite was known for similar offences and had no fixed place to live.
In his application for bail, Brathwaite also admitted to being a cocaine addict and requested help.
He was therefore remanded, while James’ attorney Harry Husbands was able to make a successful bail application.
The two accused return to court on May 7.
