19-year-old to stand trial for Premium Wines Robbery

Nineteen-year-old Everald Sambula will stand trial at the Supreme Court for a robbery that happened at Premium Wines and Spirit last September. In 2018, Sambula was arraigned on four counts of robbery. The Preliminary Inquiry was held today before Magistrate Emmerson Banner where he ruled that Sambula must stand trial in October. The teenager, who appeared unrepresented in court, was unable to produce an alibi witness for his trial. The court gave him seven days to provide a list of names. On September seventh 2018, just after ten in the morning, three armed robbers held up Premium Wines & Spirit. That heist netted fifty-five-thousand dollars. The thieves also robbed owner Maria Price and two of her employees. They were relieved of personal items valued at around three thousand, four hundred dollars.
