Cops charge 4th man in year old robbery

| 03/12/2013

(CNS): A 27 year old man who was arrested and charged by police this weekend is due to appear in the Grand Court next Friday in connection with an armed hold up of a courier van in George Town last year. Brandon Liberal is the fourth man charged in the heist in which the robbers are said to have escaped with around $9000 in cash. The robbery of the Sprint courier van took place outside Britcay House on 4 October, 2012 when robbers threatened the driver with a semi-automatic pistol before fleeing with the cash. Manuel Carter and John Cohen Ebanks have already pleaded not guilty to the crime and a third West Bay teenager, Tarick Crawford, who was charged later has also denied his part in the hold up.

Although trial dates had been set in the past for at least two of the men legal issues have led to their adjournment. It is not clear if the crown will be seeking to add the latest defendant to the existing indictments and attempt to try all four men together.
