MONDAY, MARCH 21: Two teens appeared in Magistrates’ Court facing multiple firearm and robbery charges.

Jaron Roberts, 19 and Kamrone Whiting, 18, were charged with using an imitation firearm to rob a woman of a bike box containing cash, a digital camera, a BlackBerry phone and personal items on March 14 in Pembroke.

They were also charged with using an fake gun during an attempted robbery on the same day in Devonshire with another person.

In Warwick, the pair allegedly used an imitation firearm to rob a woman of her Nolan helmet on the same day, with another person.

They were also charged with using the fake gun during an attempted robbery with another person later that day in Warwick.

On the same day, Mr. Roberts and Mr. Whiting allegedly threatened another person with intent to cause the person harm in Paget.

On March 15, the pair are said to have robbed a man in Warwick of $72 in Bermudian money and $30 Canadian while using a fake gun, with another person.

Mr. Whiting was charged with stealing a knapsack on March 14 in St. George’s that had a camera bag, an Olympus camera and personal items valued at $995.

Mr. Roberts was charged with dishonestly receiving the camera and camera bag.

All the charged are indictable which means the defendants weren’t required to enter pleas because the matter must be heard in the Supreme Court.

Mr. Whiting was also charged with attempting to break into a home in Hamilton Parish on February 24.

He denied the charge.

Both men were remanded into custody until March 28.
