No bail for man charged with robbing Tobago tourists

Terrance Cordner has appeared before a Scarborough Magistrate on allegations of robbing a Polish tourist on Sunday.

The 57-year-old man from Speyside, Tobago, appeared before Magistrate Indrani Cedeno in the First Court where he plead not guilty to the offence.

After further submissions to the court, the matter was adjourned to January 7.

Cordner was denied bail and remanded into custody by Cedeno.

He was reminded of his right to apply to a judge in chambers to appeal this.

Cordner was charged with robbing Marzena Milewska and her daughter Nathalie Chhzynska.

The mother and daughter, who came to Tobago aboard the Costa Magica cruise liner, left a bag containing a Samsung phone valued at €370 and €330 in cash on Rockley Bay, on Milford Road, Scarborough, to go for a walk along the beach.

Upon returning, the two women discovered that the contents of the bag were missing.

The women raised an alarm and police were notified.

PC Piggot and PC Wharwood were in the vicinity at the time and they immediately responded.

The officers were able to detain the suspect a short distance away and retrieve the stolen items.
