Share post:

A 24-year-old man who appeared before a Bridgetown Magistrate this afternoon was remanded to HMP Dodds for sentencing next month.

Shaquille Ricarla Calderon, of Thores Gap, Lands End, Spring Garden, St Michael, was not required to plead to having a firearm without a valid licence last December 20.

He was also not required to plead to the indictable offences of assaulting Linda Abbott with intent to rob her last December 8 and robbing Elke Sommer of a $500 cell phone last December 20.

However, he pleaded guilty to three counts of breaking and entering and two counts of theft, but denied two other robbery charges.

He returns to court on March 27 for sentencing. (RA)
