James Simon

A 20-year-old male from Dock Yard found himself in court today facing a string of firearm-related charges stemming from an investigation by the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force.

James Simon, the accused, was denied bail and remanded into custody until a Sufficiency Hearing set for July 5th, 2024.

Simon faces a litany of charges, including robbery, gang membership, and possession of firearms and ammunition for the benefit of a gang. These charges originated from an incident at a casino parking lot where three individuals, allegedly including Simon, robbed a victim.

Further charges were brought against Simon following his arrest on May 2nd along South Dock Road. These additional charges include possession of a firearm and ammunition, as well as unlawful entry.

In connection with the May 2nd incident, a teenage minor accompanying Simon was also charged with unlawful entry. The seventeen-year-old from Kew Town, Providenciales, entered a guilty plea and is awaiting sentencing scheduled for May 20th.
