Kaieteur News – A pair of serial thieves suspected of committing an armed robbery have been charged at a Suri Trading dealer.
Appearing before his Worship, Esther Sam, at Anna Regina Magistrates’ Court were Robin Patrick, 22, a miner, of the Charity Housing Scheme, Essequibo Coast, Region Two, and Munesh Ramsarup, 30, of Back Street, Charity, Essequibo Coast.
They allegedly attacked and stole Christopher Harricharan from one gold ring worth $ 130,000 and $ 280,000 in cash at Plantation Opposite, Essequibo Coast, on January 21, 2020.
Patrick, the miner, pleaded guilty to the offense and was sent to prison for 30 months. Ramsarup, however, pleaded not guilty and received $ 150,000 bail.
Ramsarup is expected to return to court on Feb. 1, 2021.
According to reports, Patrick and Ramsarup, also suspected of robbery committed on two Chinese citizens last January 22, are Charity.
Two masked men had stalked the Chinese nationals and stole an iPhone worth $ 120,000 and $ 80,000 cash.
Cops had abducted them later that day with a total of $ 356,000 cash plus some clothing in their possession.
