FREEPORT – A man, accused of robbing members at a local church, was arraigned on armed robbery and assault charges in the Freeport Magistrate’s court on Tuesday.
Trischan Johnson, 30, of Lewis Yard, appeared in Court 3 before Deputy Chief Magistrate Helen Jones.
He was charged with two counts of armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
Johnson pleaded not guilty to the assault charge. However, he was not required to enter a plea to the armed robbery charges.
It is alleged that on December 22, the accused entered a church on Sunset Highway and robbed two church members of an i-phone valued at $700, keys, and a black bag containing $400 in cash and other personal items.
Johnson was represented by LaQuey Laing. He was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison until April 8, 2014 when a preliminary inquiry will be held into the matter.
