Bail of $65,000 has been set for two men who were reportedly involved in a daring daytime robbery at the Marigot Credit Union.
Jamie Andrew and Michel Azille could get bail if a proper surety is found for them.
The men appeared in court on Thursday.
Andrew and Azille are jointly charged with Iam Massicot, Mitchel Joseph and Princeton George for the March 9th robbery of the Marigot Credit Union.
The men were slapped with three charges of attempted murder, aggravated burglary with the use of firearms on the Marigot Credit Union, conspiracy to possess 9 rounds of 9-mm ammunition, conspiracy to possess one 28” gauge shot gun with intent to endanger lives, conspiracy to possess one sub-machine gun magazine with intent to endanger life, and robbery of $36, 851.45 from the Marigot Credit Union.
Neither the money nor the firearms used in the alleged crime have been recovered by the police.
Police Inspector Claude Weekes urged the magistrate to consider the severity of the matter before opening bail to the accused. However, defense attorney Wayne Norde reminded the court that his clients have been on remand for the past six months for an offence which is bailable.
The matter is set to begin June 13, 2013.
