Three men yesterday appeared in the San Fernando Magistrates’ Court charged with last week Thursday’s robbery at Time Savers supermarket, Cocoyea Village.

Junior Salena, 33, of La Romaine; Andy Phoolchan, 31, of Bamboo Village; Trevonlee Walker, 33, of Golconda; appeared before senior magistrate Cherril-Anne Antoine who read the charges to them. A charge of robbery with aggravation against the three alleged that they robbed Crystal Samlal, 21, at the supermarket of $2,072 and 14 cartons of cigarettes valued $3,049. A second charge alleged they had 154.69 grammes of marijuana. A separate charged against Salena alleged that he had three rounds of nine millimetre ammunition.

The charges were laid by PC Marcus Lange of the San Fernando CID. Antoine granted $80,000 bail to Salena and Walker. Prosecutor Cleyon Seedan said Phoolchan had a previous conviction.

He was granted $100,000 bail. They are to return to court on February 28.
