A MAN denied being the culprit behind two gunpoint robberies over the summer during his formal Supreme Court arraignment on Friday.

Chino Milord, 19, was arraigned on two counts of armed robbery by Justice Bernard Turner through video conferencing from the Remand Centre at the Department of Correctional Services.

It is claimed that on August 13, while armed with a handgun, he robbed Hugh Johnson of $18,910.39 that belonged to The Sports Centre store.

It is also alleged that the Sutton Street resident was behind a gunpoint robbery on August 6 when Emmanuel Jerome was held up for a cell phone, $50 cash and a chain valued at $90.

Milord pleaded not guilty to charges concerning both incidents.

He was told that he would be brought before Acting Justice Rene McKay on December 14, when he will receive trial dates for both matters.

Milord, who remains without legal representation, could face up to life imprisonment if convicted of the charges.
