Two males who allegedly received high priced pieces of jewelry stolen from the dwelling of Teresa Anne Michael, the sister of very well-acknowledged politician Asot Michael, will be set on demo on September 28.

The adult males ended up implicated in the robbery soon after Kenisha Whyte-Challenger, Kerriano Thomas and Jevon Lloyd — who are at this time serving a 14-year sentence for the theft — allegedly gave them some of the stolen merchandise.

Whyte-Challenger, Thomas, and Lloyd were jointly convicted of aggravated robbery after they pleaded guilty to invading the property on May possibly 11 2019 and stealing about $600,000 really worth of jewellery along with other things.

In the meantime, a few other persons — Ian O’Brien, Vernon Braithwaite and Ivlaw John — were being charged with acquiring the items being aware of that they have been the proceeds of a criminal offense.

It is claimed that Lloyd gave his share of the jewellery to a feminine buddy and that, on May possibly 13 2019, she and Lloyd went to a jewelry keep where by she bought a gold chain to John.

The future working day, Braithwaite allegedly marketed some more of the stolen jewelry.

It is also thought that, in June 2019, Thomas took a necklace to a jewelry keep wherever O’Brien agreed to fork out for the item.

Nevertheless, the prosecution yesterday withdrew the charge towards O’Brien, but will proceed to demo with the other two accused.
