A 24-year-old Valencia man, who was charged with robbery with aggression and possession of marijuana, has been fined $18,000 by an Arima magistrate.
Keyon Le Blanc, of LP 117 Oropouche Main Road, was given one month to pay after he appeared in court last week.
The court heard that on August 22, 2018, Le Blanc was arrested for robbery with aggravation.
The incident allegedly occurred on July 23, 2018, at the Food Chain Mini Mart, Pinto Main Road, Arima.
He was placed on an identification parade on August 24, 2018, at the La Horquetta Police Station and was positively identified.
He was subsequently charged by Cpl Kerry Ramkissoon of the CID Pinto. Also involved in the arrest was WPC Smith, who also charged Le Blanc for having one pound of marijuana in his possession.
