Regional 25 Oct, 2021 Follow News

The alleged bank robbers return to court Nov. 3

Five Trinidad and Tobago men are in custody accused of attempting the most audacious of bank robberies on the island of Carriacou. If found guilty they face a maximum of 30 years in jail.

Their target was the Grenada Cooperative Bank last Monday. They have been remanded into custody after making a court appearance over the weekend.

Jabari Roach, a 25-year-old air conditioning technician; vendor Allan Melville, 28; Akeem John a 32-year-old painter; Nashawn Scotland a 29-year-old mechanic and fisherman Keon Dick, 36, did not have legal counsel when they appeared in court in St George’s. They will return to court on Nov. 3.

Two of the men are reported to have entered the bank armed with guns and wearing masks and demanded cash from three of the tellers. Videos circulating on social media show the men running away from the bank displaying cash and money bags. They then tried to flee the island using a boat, but were caught by the Grenada Coast Guard.

Each has been charged with three counts of robbery with violence and entering the state illegally.
