John Bull robbery trial starts


Tribune Staff Reporter


THREE men are expected to stand trial before Justice Indra Charles today in connection with the May 2011 robbery of the John Bull Rolex Boutique.

Prosecutors allege that Jasper Curry, David Collins and Jonathan Armbrister robbed the Bay Street store of 12 watches, together worth $395,360, last May.

During the incident, 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.

The trial was expected to start as early as February however a number of legal issues arose, prompting closed discussions between the judge and attorneys.

Today, prosecutor Sandradee Gardiner is expected to open the prosecution's case against the three accused.

They will be defended by Jomo Campbell, Jerone Roberts and Geoffrey Farquharson.
