A Westmoreland teen was nabbed in connection with the robbery of a business place in Savanna-la-Mar in the parish just over a week ago.
The 18-year-old has been identified as Venard Clarke of Top Road, Little London in the parish. Clarke was charged with Robbery With Aggravation.
It is alleged that about 4:15 p.m. on Saturday, June 6, Clarke was one of two men who held up the cashier of a business place and robbed her of JMD 22,470 and phone cards. The men escaped from the scene of the crime, however, investigators later tracked Clarke to a relative’s house the day after. He was arrested on Sunday, June 7.
He was charged following an interview in the presence of his attorney. He will appear in the Westmoreland Parish Court once a date has been finalised.
Investigators continue to probe the case in search of Clarke’s alleged accomplice.
