Three charged in connection with jewelry store robbery

After more than a week of interrogation, charges were laid on Monday against the three men held in connection with the recent armed robbery of the Swiss Stores in downtown, Kingston  

 Those charged are well known opposition Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) activist, Kayon 'Treasure" Campbell, from the eastern parish of St.Thomas; Donald Ho , a businessman in downtown, Kingston and Norman Robertson from Spanish Town in the central parish of St.Catherine.  

Campbell and Robertson are charged with robbery with aggravation, illegal possession of firearm and conspiracy to commit robbery while Ho is charged with receiving stolen goods, illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.   

They are all booked to face the Gun Court on Friday.

The office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and the Financial Investigation Division as well as other sections of the Jamaica Constabulary Force participated in the investigations.

The cops reported that on April 10, a gunman entered Swiss Stores and robbed the workers of more than 16 Rolex watches. A major operation by the Flying Squad later led to the arrests of the three men and the recovery of the watches and other items

Senior Superintendent Cornwall Ford , Head of the Flying Squad, is encouraging persons who may have lost appliances and other items to armed robbers to visit the Flying Squad offices to identify their property.
