Siparia mini-mart thieves back in court today
The three men who were charged with the robbery of a mini-mart in Siparia last week, are due back in court today.
The accused are 38-year-old Kevin Nickie, AKA Bug, a labourer of Moruga; 33-year-old Jason Glasgow, AKA Mad Man, from Siparia; and 32-year-old Enrigue Rigoux, AKA Jesus, a PH driver of Maloney.
They all originally appeared before a Siparia Magistrate yesterday.
However, an application for bail was made, and the matter was forced to be stood down for back ground tracings to be made available.
As a result, the three men were denied bail, remanded in custody, and ordered to return this morning.
PC Mulchan was the complainant (charging officer) in the matter.
Investigations were supervised by Sgt Jaggernauth of the Siparia CID.
A total of 13 charges were laid against the accused.
Police said during the incident, which took place around 7:20 am on October 25, four armed men entered the mini-mart and not only robbed the owner and his relative but also beat them.
The assailants took a quantity of cash, cigarettes and cellphones and fired several shots at the mini-mart before escaping in the owner's own black Toyota Yaris.
The stolen car was later found in front of Nickie's home that same day.
All three men were jointly charged with three counts of possession of a firearm, three counts of possession of ammunition, three counts of shooting with intent, two counts of robbery with violence and one count of possession of a firearm and ammunition.
Nickie was also charged with two counts of possession of a firearm and ammunition for an incident in Princes Town, while Rigoux was served with an extra charge of wasteful employment of police time.
