Robbers Granted $2M Bail

At a glance

Following the June robbery of a Glencoe home, one of the two men involved has been granted a $2 million bail.

A second man is being sought by police in connection with the robbery.

A Moruga man who along with another man robbed a home in Glencoe in June has been granted bail in the sum of $2 million.

Timmy Simons, 32, a labourer, who gave police three addresses in Princes Town and Moruga, appeared before Port of Spain Magistrate Sanara Toon in the 4B Magistrates Court, charged with robbing a house at 20 Atlantic Avenue, Shorelands, Glencoe, on June 6 of $33,000, 100 Euros, 100 British Pounds and US$500 and a quantity of jewellery, all totalling $2 million.

He was also charged with using personal violence against one of the occupants of the house at the time of the robbery.

When Simons appeared in court today, police prosecutor Sgt Azard Ali objected to bail being granted on the grounds that the accused gave the police three addresses.

Simons attorney Alexia Romero submitted that her client had no previous convictions or pending matters and his wife, who is four months pregnant and epileptic, was hospitalised at present.

Bail was set in the sum of $2 million to cover the charges.

Simons is to return to court on August 29.

A second man, from Fifth Company, Moruga, is also being sought by police in connection with the robbery.
