Trial dates were set Friday (9 December) in two noteworthy cases in Grand Court. The couple accused of robbing Mitzi’s Fine Jewelry in November 2015 will stand trial beginning 1 May 2017.
Madeinys Ebanks-Pol and Adrian Adela Gea are both charged with robbery, and Mr. Gea is also charged with possession of an imitation firearm.
Ms. Ebanks-Pol was working in the store at the time, and Mr. Gea is accused of being the gunman who stole $516,000 worth of jewelry in the hold-up. The two pleaded not guilty to all of the charges and remain free on bail until next year’s trial.
