Fourth suspect denies courier van heist

| 16/12/2013

(CNS): The fourth man recently charged with the robbery of a courier van has denied having any part in the crime, which took place in the car park of a local insurance firm last year. Brandon Liberal (27) pleaded not guilty to both possession of an unlicensed firearm and robbery in connection with the daylight heist outside BritCay House on 4 October 2012. Four men including one teenager are now accused of threatening the driver of a Sprint courier van, who was collecting money from the insurance firm, with a semi-automatic handgun and stealing more than CI$8,000 and almost US$600. Liberal was remanded in custody until a bail hearing this week.

His defence attorney John Furniss, said he was seeking further evidence from the crown regarding his client’s alleged involvement in the hold-up.

No trial date has yet been set for Liberal and it is not clear if the crown will be seeking to try him together with Manuel Carter, John Cohen Ebanks and Tarick Crawford, who are all  charged with the same offence.
