Minor and adult charged for Attempted Robbery

Story PictureA seventeen year old minor will spend his Christmas in the company of juvenile offenders. That’s because he has been remanded to the Wagner’s Youth Facility in Hattieville. He is accused of Attempted Robbery and Possession of Unlicensed Firearm and Ammunition. For the illegal firearm offence, he was charged jointly with twenty-two year old Calvin Palma, a case that will be called on January eighteenth, 2010. The robbery for which he pleaded guilty occurred on Thursday morning when he tried to rob Israel Ortiz at a shop on Faber’s Road. Ortiz said someone entered the business and pointed a gun at his abdomen and demanded money. He said he grabbed the person and they struggled, but the culprit escaped. Police found the minor and the other accused, Calvin Palma with a point thirty-two service revolver with six live rounds. The youth will be sentenced for the attempted robbery after his trial for the illegal firearm ends.
