Peters, 20, a bus conductor, was granted bail in the amount of $30,000 when he appeared at the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court yesterday. He was not allowed to plead to the five charges laid against him.

Peters is charged with entering Joyette’s Garage, at Murray Village on July 6, 2013 and stealing a .32 revolver valued at $1,900, a quantity of gold and diamond jewelry, valued EC$90,000 and EC$6,600 and US$1,500 in cash, a total value of EC$102,505.00.

Peters is also charged with having a weapon in his possession, the property of Dennis Joyette of Glen, at the time of the robbery, with intent to commit the offence of murder of Dennis Joyette of Glen and using motor vehicle PJ551, without the consent of the owner.

The prosecution did not object to Peters’ bail, but asked the court to order that he surrender his travel documents and that he not leave the jurisdiction without permission of the court.

Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias ordered Peters to surrender his travel documents and report to the Central Police Station on Mondays and Fridays.

Stop notices are to be placed at all ports of entry and exit and he was ordered not to have any contact with the virtual complainant.

It is alleged that Joyette, said to be in his seventies, was beaten and robbed by assailants shortly after 10 a.m on July 6, 2013.(KW)
