GUYANA – THREE men were sentenced to 16 years imprisonment by Magistrate Zamilla Ally-Seepaul for the robbery and home invasion of Land Court Judge Nicola Pierre and her husband Mohammed Chan. Dameion Millington, 22, of Lot 118 Caesar Street, Agricola; Nicholas Narine, 18, also of Caesar Street, Agricola and Warren McKenzie, 22, of Lot 18 Brutus Street, Agricola, were all charged with robbery under arms and felonious wounding of Pierre and Chand.

Millington, Narine and McKenzie were sentenced to eight years for the armed robbery charge and eight years for wounding the duo. The men broke down in tears when the magistrate told them their sentences would run consecutively. Prior to the sentencing, the magistrate asked the defendants if they had anything to say; in response, the men denied committing the offences and proclaimed their innocence.
In passing the sentences, Magistrate Ally-Seepaul said she took into consideration the amount of time the men had been on remand and the fact that they have no previous convictions.
The magistrate also considered the evidence which revealed that they were all part of the crime and that they had aided and abetted each other; the serious nature of the offence, since the lives of the virtual complainants had been threatened; the high value of the items they stole; the brutality and use of a firearm.
The matter was prosecuted by Attorney Nigel Hughes, who was hired by the office of Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
On June 17, the magistrate had found two other men not guilty of the crime. They are Premnauth Samaroo and Anthony David. The charges stated that on July 9, 2015 at Montrose, East Coast Demerara, being in the company of three others and being armed with a gun, they robbed the victims of a safe containing US$7,000, five wristwatches, a Samsung Galaxy S5 phone, a wedding ring, four Oakley sunglasses and one brown leather wallet, totalling over $ 2.6M.
They were also accused of feloniously wounding Pierre and her husband and discharging a loaded firearm at Roy Peters, with intent to maim, disable, disfigure or cause him grievous bodily harm. Pierre sustained a broken jaw and other injuries,while her husband received severe injuries to an eye,which he lost as a result.

JAMAICA  – What may have been a dry run for the offloading of counterfeit notes on unsuspecting individuals in Trelawny gave the police an added bonus as they arrested two men and destroyed a counterfeit ring.

Charged under the Breaches of the Law Reform are Byron Stennett, 62, and 28-year-old Elton Stennett.

The younger Stennett was released on a $700,000 bail when he appeared in the Falmouth Resident Magistrate’s Court yesterday. The elder Stennett was not required to attend court for his release on a $250,000 bond. The next court date is set for January 28.

purchase items

Allegations are that close to midnight on January 4, Elton Stennett, who was travelling with another person, gave counterfeit notes when he reportedly stopped to purchase items in Salt Marsh, Trelawny. It is reported that the persons discovered the fake currency and a vigilante group was formed to apprehend the men.

They were caught in Falmouth and in a bid to escape crashed their vehicle. The men reportedly attempted to escape on foot, but quick action by the police held them. The car was further damaged by the irate group

Corporal Kevin Watson of The Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Task Force (West) said a subsequent search of Stennett’s home in Granville, St James, uncovered two scanning machines similar to the ones found at ATMs, a reader and writer to place information on debit and credit cards, over 70 blank debit and credit cards, counterfeit Jamaican and US currencies along with over US$200,000 (J$23 million)

The elder Stennett was not present, or part of the issuing of the counterfeit notes, but was arrested because he also resides at the house that was searched. The other man in the car with Elton Stennett was released. – Jamaican Star
