Weekend Mirror - - CHILDREN’S CORNER -

Two

men were on Mon­day last re­manded to prison when they ap­peared at the Ge­orge­town Mag­is­trates’ Courts for al­legedly rob­bing a pas­tor of $1.8M.

Ren­hart Khan, 31, of Par­faite Har­monie, West Bank De­mer­ara and Alexan­der LaCruz, 25, of On­derneem­ing, Esse­quibo Coast pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to them by Mag­is­trate Judy Latch­man.

The court heard that on Novem­ber 22, 2017, at Church Street, Ge­orge­town, the duo, while be­ing armed with a gun, robbed Pas­tor Elden An­der­son of $1.8M.

The Pros­e­cu­tion ob­jected to bail based on the se­ri­ous­ness of the charge.

As such, the two men were re­manded to prison and are ex­pected to re-ap­pear in court on De­cem­ber 11, 2017.

It was pre­vi­ously re­port- ed that on the day in ques­tion, the vic­tim was pounced on by the two ban­dits af­ter he stepped out of his car.

They then pro­ceeded to rob him of the stated amount which was in the ve­hi­cle, wrapped as a par­cel.
