Alleged Western Union robbers denied bail; remanded

Odgie (left), Alexander

Two Grand Bay men accused of executing an armed robbery at the Western Union outlet in Roseau last week were on Monday denied bail.

Forty-three-year-old Kelvin Alexander and 34-year-old Omisie Odigie appeared before Chief Magistrate Evelina Baptiste on Monday morning.

The two were charged with aggravated burglary in which they are alleged to have stolen $218,695.91 from the establishment using a shot gun.

The incident allegedly occurred on February 2, 2012.

That sum included $196,149.69 Eastern Caribbean (EC) currency and US $7,585 or $20,251.95 when converted to EC.

The men are also accused of assaulting Paula George with intent to rob her during their attack on Western Union.

Alexander faced an individual charge of possession of two rounds of live 12 gauge ammunition in Grand Bay, to which he pleaded not guilty.

Odigie also pleaded not guilty to a charge of possession of cannabis.

Police Prosecutor Claude Weekes objected to bail for the defendant on the grounds that if released, they would interfere with  yet to be completed investigations.

According to him some of the cash and firearms used to commit the robbery have not yet been recovered.

Weekes also told the court that while it is understood that one is innocent before being proven guilty the severity of the sentences related to such offenses should be taken into consideration.

“These firearms are still on the street,” Weekes told the court.

He also indicated that Odigie was already on bail for another indictable offense.

Meanwhile lawyer for the accused men Wayne Norde told the court that he was not ready to make a bail application and that he would approach the court on that matter next week.

He however told the court that he was informed that large amounts of the stolen cash had been recovered by police.

The aggravated burglary and assault with intent to rob charges are both indictable and did not require a plea.

The preliminary inquiry for these matters and the trial for the other two summary charges are scheduled for July 26, 2012.

The men were remanded untill February 13, 2012.

    WE ALL MUST THINK AND SAY THINGS WHICH MAKES SENSE INSTEAD OF SAYING NONE SENSE .
    ONE OF THE YOUNG BOY’S NAME IS FOREIGN,HIS FATHER AFRICAN ,HIS MOTHER DOMINICAN.
    IF HE WAS PART OF OUR FAMILY WHETHER AFRICAN OR DOMINICAN WE WOULD WANT HIM TO HAVE THE RIGHT TO LIVE WHERE HIS FAMILY’S HOME LAND IS.THIS YOUNG MAN DO NOT KNOW ANY THING ABOUT HIS FATHER ,I SUPPOSE HE WAS BORN IN ENGLAND AND WAS TAKEN TO DOMINICA BY HIS MOTHER .HE HAS A RIGHT TO LIVE THERE. HE HAS BECOME A CRIMINAL LET HIM FACE THE TIME WHERE HE MADE IT.NO ONE WAS KILLED NOR INJURED .DO NOT MAKE HIS CRIMINAL BEHAVIOUR TURN INTO SOMETHING RACIAL,BECAUSE IF WE HAVE TO LOOK AT IT IN A RACIAL MANNER AND ALL THE FOREIGN COUNTRIES THINK THE SAME WAY I THINK DOMINICA WILL BE AMONG THE FIRST ENGLISH COUNTRIES TO WELCOME HOME MOST OF ITS CRIMINAL LIVING ABROAD..STARTING FROM GUADA ,ST MARTINS AND ENGLAND BECAUSE THESE PLACES HAVE THE MOST CRIMINAL DOMINICANS.

    Yow, it is about time that the legislators pass laws with penalties which deter criminals my people. We also need to give them work to do in jail. Create jobs in there in manufacturing as well as jobs which involve hard labour…….cleaning the beaches, the overgrown bushes on narrow roads and other things. Something has to be done to curb this trend of the use of firearms period!!!!! People’s habits worsen when you just let things lay quietly without making any adjustments in order to impliment change. Our leaders also need to set the bar of accepted behaviour much higher than its present level. Lawlessness and prostitution seem to be acceptable and encouraged. Young Bull touches on it all in his song. If this behaviour is considered normal and acceptable and is not tackled by the authourities, then the children grow learning this behaviour as the norm. The society will get worse with every new generation which fails to act! Wake up folks…….where are our values??? :-x

    There has been a misconception about video and camera evidence for too long. Please check http://www.dominica.gov.dm/laws/2010/Electronic%20Evidence%20no.%2013.pdf

    That is straight from the governments’ website. Since May 2010 video, camera or any evidence created, recorded or stored by an electronic system is admissible in court.

    There have been limited cases here where the magistrates have accepted the evidence because of lack of training and following procedure by either the police or DPP office.

    Check the facts. I hope the police created their evidence log and record all who has access to the recordings.

    Tell the “so-called” security companies to do their work. And more electronic laws are expected to be passed this year…

      @ Dominica to de bone

      They could do as the Haitians who are hardworking and who try to make a living in DA. Purchase a piece of land and grow fruits, vegetables, beans, peas and herbs. They could make a lot of money selling them.
      Keep in mind the Haitian man who was deported – asked to leave DA. He had a barber shop.
      There is no excuse for them to steal what does not belong to them. They are just plain lazy and wicked of heart. They want to get rich without having to work for it.

    One of the robber is A Nigerian living in dominica with a prior arrest history on the island.

    With all those foriegn national makeing dominica there home , that robbery is just the calm before the storm.[unfortunately]

      February 8, 2012

      well, he is not a nigerian but his father is. so that is what happens when Dominican women like to breed for any stranger, not knowing anything about them. hope it’s not a curse from his fathers side that fall on him, them kind of people there have so much dirty hands. Nevertheless, I think a majority of south city men have a reputation for these kinds of offences.

    All I can say is Good job magistrate. NO consideration whatsoever for bail on Monday either and when the time comes, punishment to the greatest extent of the law. THis is an extremely serious crime. Not to mention is highly likely they are the same persons doing this allover the island.First of a kind in Roseau I daresay. You need to make an example of those thugs to deter other wouldbe armed robbers. Sentencing on each charge for the maximum allowable time baring in mind the history of the offenders. Your job is to keep the streets safe. Some perps are way past rehabilitation. Look at the matter with wisdom, May God bless you.

    OMICIE ODIGIE IS NOT A NIGIRIAN ….I SUPPOSE BUT NOT 100%SURE THAT HE IS BRITISH .HE IS THE CHILD OF A GRAND BAY LADY AND A NIGERIAN MAN.
    THIS YOUNG MAN DO NOT KNOW HIS FATHER BECAUSE HIS FATHER LEFT HIS MOTHER EITHER PREGNANT OR AS A NEW BORN BABY AND NEVER TURNED BACK TO TAKE CARE OF THAT CHILD…
    NONE THE LESS I HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR HIM ABOUT WHAT HE DID BECAUSE HE IS NOW ON BAIL DUE TO CAUSING SOME ONES DEATH WITH A BIKE AND TO MAKE IT WORSE FOR HIM HE IS NOT CRAVING FOR ANY THING TO SURVIVE BECAUSE HIS MOTHER SENDS EVERY THING HE IS IN NEED OF FOR HIM.AS A MATTER OF FACT THE COURT SYSTEM IN DOMINICA WILL SEE HOW BAD IT IS NOW ,AFTER SOMEONE COMMITS A CRIME ASK TO BAIL THEM OUT .IF THEY DID NOT GIVE HIM ANY BAIL AFTER KILLING THE PERSONS SON HE WOULD NOT BE IN THAT DIRTY BUSINESS NOW.HE IS SIMPLY GREEDY AND USELESS TO PUT SUCH A SHAME IN HIS PARENTS FACE LIKE THIS.
    AS FOR KELVIN ALEXANDER HE IS A WELL KNOWN JEHOVAH WITNESS SON AND A FORMER SCHOOL TEACHER WHO LIVES JUST OPPOSITE THE TETE MORNE SCHOOL .THESE YOUNG MEN ARE NOT HUNGRY MEN THEY ONLY WANT TO DO THINGS THAT ARE AGAINST THE LAW.TEACH THEM A LESSON .

    Grand Bay is not the worst village in Dominica, some of you people writing your comments and condemming Grand Bay need to know that Possie is worst5 than Grand Bay in the sixties there were reports of crimes in Possie everyday

    What about them Possie guys who stormed the Possie Police Station and killed how many officers, and almost kill Delsol from the south, i can’t remember exactly which village, what about all the crimes being committed in Possie, killing of Tourist in the yachts, etc, give me a break Grand Bay is not the worst village in DA, Possie and the other villages people are not better than Grand Bay people, too many times when a crime is committed in DA in a village, v villagers from the other communities too like to stereotype everyone from that village

    Murderers are never found after a killing on the island but as soon as some business owner money gets touched crime solve quick. It’s interesting to me how the dollar is more valuable than a Dominican citizez. Don’t get me wrong i give the force quodoes for getting the alleged theives but their are too many unsolved violent crimes on the island that needs the same swift attention that the large sum of currency did.

      @notnice I agree with that statement, however it tends to be easier to hear about who stole cash and finding it as opposed to finding the murderer next to the dead body waiting for the police. also in d/ca they always complain that police dont do their jobs in finding murderers but like i always say if no one helps in giving evidence or answering questions; then how are they supposed to catch these people?

    • Justice and Truth
      February 6, 2012

      @ Betti

      I disagree with you. Utilize your common sense and cease giving DNO orders as if you own this establishment. DNO knows fully well what they are doing. It is their job to release such information.
      Who are people as you to dictate to DNO about their duty? The public wants to know how much money was stolen. It is no different in other countries nor should it be in DA. You do get me angry.
      All financial institutions, no exception Western Union carry and/or have a certain amount of cash as this on their premises for their business transactions. This also includes the stores. Those robbers know this very well. It is my feeling that they went to Western Union because it is not properly protected and robbers are bold. What will they not do and ignore to steal money? These days they do not go for a few dollars. They go for a big amount. This is avarice. What did they plan to do with all that money in DA? They are lazy people who do not want to work for their living and who envy what others work for. They want free money. They are a menace to society.
      From then on the owner(s) of Western Union must ensure that this business premise is protected, at least, to a certain degree.
      I would keep them incarcerated until the case is called. May they not be walking the streets. One of them was already out on bail. He has now forfeited his freedom and will receive double sentencing.
      GIVE THOSE MEN JESUS! THIS IS WHAT THEY WANT AND SHOULD SEEK! They have swayed far from God and the religious teachings which I am certain they received in bygone years. Otherwise as I always say, they will end up in Satan’s cauldron of everlasting fire. Those thieves who also carry guns and will use them have no love and concern for human life. This is where they will end up. Do they not fear this eternal fate?
      St. Paul said, “No murderer/criminal/robber, etc. and the likes will ever enter God’s Kingdom of eternal bliss.

    it affect the whole of Dominica. I am glad

      @ Grand Bay Girl

      Nevertheless it creates a stigma on the village where they reside and give it a bad name.
      The Law is people are presumed innocent until tried and if proven guilty. This is only to be fair and to give them a fair hearing. This does not mean they are not guilty. How many guilty people walk away free due to their defense lawyer. I do hope that these will not get away. As the saying goes, they have cooked their goose. They are not beyond rehabilitation.

      @ is me

      How long does it take, to take a bath? Or was it a shower? Note the difference. What we call a bath is filling the bath tub and entering in it, sitting in it, remaining there for a while, bathing oneself. Taking a shower, the water flows on the body while standing up. This can take only a few minutes which depends on how rushed people are. For some it may be 10 to 15 minutes. For others it may be 5 minutes or less. If he was in a hurry, consider how much time it would take him to let the water run over his body, to wipe himself, put on some clothes, leave his place of residence, catch a bus and arrive in town. He probably did not even have breakfast unless he got up early.
      I would advise to leave well alone and do not question that time for you were not present with the man. It is fruitless and beyond the point. Leave this to the evidence that the Police has on him and his lawyer. In fact, his alibi may be warped and fabricated to save his hide. They are very good at that, telling lies to avoid a sentence and jail.

    They should stay in jail and given the maximum sentence, its about time that the authorities in Da get tough with these thugs. We need a peaceful Da for all Da people and all who visits Da.
