2 charged in resort incident

Two men appeared in Summary Court on Tuesday, charged in connection with an incident at the Caribbean Club on 1 February.

Robert Lewis Terry, 25, is accused of aggravated criminal trespass: that, without lawful excuse, he entered the private premises of the Caribbean Club and at the time had a firearm in his possession. He is further charged with possession of an unlicensed firearm, a Glock pistol.

Matthew Joseph Henry, 24, is charged with criminal trespass: entering the private premises without lawful excuse.

Chief Magistrate Margaret Ramsay-Hale granted bail to Henry, but not to Lewis. She pointed out that there is no right to bail on gun-related charges.

Crown Counsel Laura Manson did not go into detail but objected to bail for Henry, saying he was “closely associated” with the incident. Defence Attorney Lloyd Samson said the Crown could revisit the charge if further evidence came.

Henry’s bail is with a 6pm to 6am curfew and a surety of $2,000. He is not to enter the premises of the Caribbean Club or speak to any Crown witnesses.

Lewis, who was represented by Attorney James Stenning, said he was due back in court on 10 February for another matter.

The magistrate adjourned this matter for the same date.

  1. The Same Crappy system as the United Kingdom obviously. It should be 5 years as a minimum with no release for good behavior. How does this deter these criminals??

    It does not, in fact it just encourages them to think they can simply get away with it!!

    No wonder crime is getting out of control!!
