Man Charged for Chinese Grocery Shop Robbery

Joshua Smith

Also in the Magistrate’s Court, twenty-two-year-old Joshua Smith of East Collet Canal was read charges of robbery with a firearm for an attack on a Chinese grocery on the opposite side of the canal. Xin Hui Zhang’s New Fortune Shop on West Collet Canal was hit Sunday night by two armed men. Zhang lost three cellular phones and eight hundred dollars in cash from his cash register. But leads from the restaurant’s surveillance cameras led police to Smith, who denied involvement and alleged that police beat him up. Chief Magistrate Sharon Frazer denied bail and remanded Smith to prison until April thirtieth, 2018.
