Case to be mentioned again on 3 August
Josh Alexander Bodden, 23, appeared
in Summary Court on Wednesday, facing charges of robbery and possession of an
imitation firearm with intent to commit assault.
The incident was reported as having
occurred at Shoes Best Repair and Variety Store on Fountain Road, West Bay, on
21 July, just before midday.
Crown Counsel Tricia Hutchinson
objected to bail because of the seriousness of the offence. She told Magistrate
Nova Hall that an individual entered the premises with what appeared to be a
firearm and demanded cash from a worker in the store. Cash in the sum of CI$41 and US$2 was handed
over and the person then fled.
Bodden, a resident of West Bay, did
not say anything and was not represented.
The magistrate put his matters for
mention again on 3 August.
He is also charged with refusing to
provide a specimen of urine for testing on 21 July.
