A MAN was remanded to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services by a Magistrate’s Court yesterday accused of an armed robbery at Montagu Beach last week.
Barry Nordelus, 23, appeared before Assistant Chief Magistrate Subusola Swain on charges of armed robbery and attempted armed robbery.
On June 16 at Montagu Beach, Nordelus is alleged - with an accomplice and a fire arm - to have robbed Devon King of his blue bag containing his passport and $24 in cash.
On the same day, the accused and his co-accused, armed with the same firearm, attempted to steal Marcia Ingraham’s $2,500 grey 2004 Honda Fit.
Due to the nature of the offence, Nordelus was not required to enter a plea and was informed that his case would proceed by way of a Voluntary Bill of Indictment (VBI).
Although he was denied bail in court, the accused was told of his right to apply to the Supreme Court where his case ultimately will be heard.
Until bail is granted to him, Nordelus will be returned to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services.
The accused is expected to receive his VBI on September 2.
