Courier denies stealing gold

| 03/03/2014

(CNS): A 35-year-old George Town man has denied ten counts relating to the theft of thousands of dollars’ worth of gold from a local pawn shop between November 2011 and March 2012. Evon Robinson is alleged to have stolen the gold from Cash Wiz when he was a working as a courier for Federal Express from the packets which were destined for metal refineries in the US. Robinson pleaded not guilty on Friday on all counts when he appeared in Grand Court. A trial date has been set for October and Robinson was released on bail. Although Robinson has not yet been proven to be the culprit, Cash Wiz filed a law suit against Federal Express last October holding them liable.

Robinson was arrested by police and charged following what was described as a lengthy investigation, in which it was alleged that he was taking various quantities of gold from the packets. The missing precious metal came to light as a result of consignment records which showed a disparity between the weight of gold that left Cash Wiz and the weight of gold that arrived in the US on a dozen occasions, the pawn shop claims.
