Suspected gang member remanded over robbery at Linden supermarket


A 27-year-old suspected gang member was on Wednesday remanded to prison for robbing a supermarket in Amelia’s Ward Linden, Region 10 that is owned by a Chinese national.

Richard Caesar, a construction worker, of South Amelia’s Ward, Linden, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts. 

It is alleged that on August 27, 2021, at Central Amelia’s Ward, Linden, while being armed with a gun, he robbed the Xiang Wang Supermarket of $950,000 and an iPhone 6S valued at $80,000.  

The items were the property of Guan Xiang.

Caesar was not required to plead to the indictable charge after it was read to him. 

Facts presented by the court prosecutor stated that on the day in question, Caesar and others went to the supermarket and carried out the robbery. 

The prosecutor objected to bail being granted to Caesar because he had been on the run after committing the offence. The prosecutor revealed that he was arrested on only September 19.

The Magistrate remanded him to prison until October 25, 2021. 

Last Friday, two other Lindeners were remanded to prison after being charged with robbing the supermarket. 

The duo, 19-year-old Shamar Prince of Self-Help Scheme, Amelia’s Ward, Linden, and 23-year-old Schimell Doris of Lot 1692 Central Amelia’s Ward appeared before Magistrate Wanda Fortune at the Linden Magistrate’s Court.

Doris was charged along with Prince for conspiracy to commit an armed robbery while Prince was charged separately with robbery under-arms committed at the Amelia’s Ward supermarket.

Prince was slapped with the same charge as Caesar. Meanwhile, Doris and Prince are accused of conspiring along with others to commit an armed robbery at the said supermarket.
