An armed robbery suspect concealed his identity with a towel when he appeared in court today in connection with the March 24, 2017 holdup of the National Farmers and General Workers Credit Union at Bois D’Orange.
The suspect, identified as Ked Jean of Marc, Bexon, was remanded in custody pending a bail hearing on Thursday, it was reported.
The 39 year old was charged yesterday with robbery, according to information.
Another suspect is still at large.
Two men, one of them brandishing a gun, are reported to have held up the National Farmers and General Workers Credit Union at Bois D’Orange on Friday of last week, after relieving a female security guard of her firearm.
The bandits, who were not wearing masks at the time, robbed the credit union of an estimated $50,000 in cash and cheques before escaping, according to information obtained by the Times.
The armed robbery is reported to have been captured on CCTV camera.
No one was hurt in the incident as staff of the credit union did as they were told, the Times was informed.
