Robbery case dismissed for lack of evidence

A robbery case against three men was dismissed in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Thursday, after the presiding magistrate said there was not sufficient evidence to continue the matter.

Raymond Harvey, Nathaniel Forbes and Shawn Roberts, who were dragged before the court on robbery with aggravation charges, were told the matter was dismissed against them.

The men were being accused of pretending to be workers of the National Water Commission, and robbing occupants of a home of several computers and other electronic items.

signalled to stop

It was reported that the men were travelling on Windward Road, Kingston, when they were signalled to stop by the police, however, the driver of the motor vehicle sped off.

The court heard that the men were chased and taken into custody by the police.

In court yesterday, Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey heard that Harvey and Forbes, who were in custody from October, went on identification parades, but were never pointed out.

Meanwhile, the prosecution said that Roberts confessed to similar robberies, however, Pusey pointed out that he didn't admit to the offence for which he is before the court.
