Andros teen and two men charged

A 15-year-old boy accused of robbing a woman at gunpoint was denied bail.

Prosecutors say the resident of Andros robbed Melony Colebrooke of $80, the property of Janae’s Beauty Supply Store on August 28. Additionally, the teen is accused of robbing Colebrooke of a wallet that contained $200 of her personal cash and two Alcatel cellphones, valued at $90 each.

Kirk Evans, 24, of Lowe Sound, Andros, is accused of abetting the teen in the armed robbery.

Both Evans and the teen were not required to enter pleas when they appeared before Deputy Chief Magistrate Andrew Forbes, who denied them bail.

Evans was remanded to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services and the juvenile to the Simpson Penn Centre For Boys.

Both will return to court on November 3 to receive a voluntary bill of indictment.

Meanwhile, a third man, Montell Campbell, 20, is accused of possession of the firearm that prosecutors believe was used in the armed robbery.

Prosecutors allegedly found Campbell with a black and silver 9mm pistol, with its serial number erased, on September 1.

He denied that charge and was also denied bail.

Campbell also returns to court on November 3.
