ONE of three men standing trial since May in connection with the 2011 robbery of the John Bull Rolex Boutique was acquitted yesterday as prosecution offered no further evidence against him.
Jasper Curry, who was represented by attorney Jomo Capmbell, was acquitted of armed robbery when Justice Indra Charles directed the nine member jury to return a 9-0 not guilty verdict against the accused.
Curry, who was on bail, was told by Justice Charles that he was free to go.
Curry, along with David Collins and Jonathan Armbrister was alleged to have robbed the Bay Street store of 12 watches, together worth $395,360, last May.
During the raid, a masked man used a hammer to smash open the display cases before taking the luxury watches.
An accomplice was armed with a rifle and a third man had driven the getaway car.
Collins and Armbrister are still being prosecuted.
