Woman and male accomplice jailed

A woman and her male accomplice have been jailed for robbing a cashier at a store.
Caswell Weekes of Richland Park and Valcina Ollivierre of Arnos Vale were each sentenced Tuesday to four years in prison when they appeared before the High Court and pleaded guilty to robbing Joyce Browne of Richland Park in August, last year.{{more}}
Reports say that Ollivierre, who was armed with a knife, went to the City Store at Richland Park and purchased some items. As the cashier, Joyce Browne, attempted to return her change, Weekes confronted her with a cutlass, cut her on the thumb and demanded money.
Weekes and Ollivierre were said to have robbed Browne of EC$998.78, US$101 and Bds$80.
The two were also convicted for another robbery which took place at Arnos Vale in May last year. They were each sentenced to five years to run concurrently.
