Restaurant employee accused of robbing workplace, beating female manager

Two locals have been hauled before the Magistrate’s Court for the recent robbery of Capriccio di Mare Restaurant in Road Town.

Twenty-three-year-old Carrot Bay resident Orron Glasgow — a chef at the establishment — and 28-year-old Jamoi Estridge of West End were jointly charged with robbery and grievous bodily harm.

Estridge has an additional charge of possession of a firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence.

The duo was not required to plead when they appeared before Senior Magistrate Tamia Richards on Tuesday.

Allegations

The court heard that on May 14, a lone masked man allegedly entered the Italian restaurant and took $6,200 and a bag containing several personal belongings including two cellular phones. Some €500 was also taken from the female manager at the establishment.

It is also alleged that the manager was pistol-whipped and kicked repeatedly.

After the alleged attack, the matter was reported to the police, and the said employee sought medical attention for several lacerations about her body.

CCTV, items at home

During subsequent investigations, police retrieved CCTV footage of the area, which reportedly linked the duo to the crime.

Police then executed a search warrant at Estridge’s home where they allegedly uncovered a number of items connected to the incident.

The men were subsequently arrested and charged.

During a subsequent police interview, the men admitted to being in a vehicle in the vicinity of the restaurant, but they denied the allegations.

No bail

Attorney-at-law Reynela Rawlins who was represented Glasgow urged the court to grant him bail because he was not a flight risk.

She said him being a local meant that he had strong ties to the territory. She urged the court to impose strong bail conditions instead.

Meanwhile, Estridge, who is said to have an unrelated assault charge pending before the court, sought bail on his own behalf.

However, Magistrate Richards denied bail for both accused men. She said the offences were serious and noted that a female was injured during the alleged incident.

Both men were ordered remanded and are scheduled to return to court on July 15.

No mention was made in open court as to the whereabouts of the firearm in the case. Investigations are ongoing.

    Wow I’m so ashamed. There has always been this perception about young men in the BVI being lazy. Now an expat business men give these local guys an opportunity to work despite having a stereotypical look that persons often associate with trouble and instead of working hard, proving the doubters wrong and being good representation of the BVI they not only rob their boss but assault him as well.

        Don’t you understand that just being born here doesn’t mean one is from here? Virgin islander status is by descendance. These guys grew up in migrant households where they learned the values of their families. It is our government that is causing these problems by letting everyone in.

  7. Hmmm says:

    Then you wonder why businesses are wary of hiring locals, especially young men? I know there are VERY GOOD young locals here who work very hard, but then there are these types of people who hopefully are in the minority. The manager will be scarred for LIFE and over what? A few dollars?

      $6,200.00 can purchase a pound of pop high grade. If you really want to maximize profit. Dime out the hold pound and sell ram bag for $20. You will nearly triple that investment.

      @Hmmm
      Speak for yourself.
      I’m an expat.
      Every country in the world has a few bad apples the spoil it for the rest.
      My team I work with is no different. Sure there are a couple of characters in the mix that let themselves down more than anything by putting in minimal effort and being disengaged. However, these guys are vastly outnumbered by amount of dedicated, professional, polite, hard-working, fun-loving, local young people that do this territory and their parents proud. It’s a privilege to work with them.
      If you’re going to discount a whole group of people based on the actions of a few then this is your loss.

        Learn to read! I did mention the same thing you said. FYI I am a BVIslander and I own a company that employs 18 people, 14 of which are local so I know what I’m talking about. I post was about perception and perception is ‘real’ in the real world.

How is it that someone give you a chance to earn a honest dollar and you thank them by robbing their business and pistol whipping a woman. Now a honest person who is in need of a job and wants to work is going to get F**ked over because of these two waste of space idiots.What those two did was real grimey and fowl.
