'Crime Boss' in court for Caribbean Jewellers heist

A 26-year-old man has appeared in court in connection with a robbery which occurred at Caribbean Jewellers, Gulf City Mall, Lowlands, Tobago on Monday.

Alveion Nurse, also known as 'Crime Boss' appeared in the Scarborough Magistrates Court on Friday.

He was charged with three offences of robbery with a firearm of jewellery from Caribbean Jewellers totalling $1,244,164.00; Contrary to Section 24 (1) (a) of the Larceny Act.

The charges were laid indictably and Nurse was not called upon to plead guilty or not guilty.

He was represented by Martin George & Co, who made an application for bail on behalf of Nurse.

However, the records revealed that he has four pending matters before the court for larceny, common assault and robbery with aggravation and one previous conviction for possession of marijuana.

As a result of these pending matters and the previous conviction, Magistrate Dwayne Murray did not grant bail.

He was remanded into custody until March 20, when he will re-appear in the Scarborough First Magistrates Court.

On Monday, gunmen dressed in Muslim wear entered the jewellery store, held up the workers and robbed them of jewellery.

Two teenage girls were shot after police engaged in a shootout with the bandits.
