A St James man who held up a senior citizen at gunpoint and robbed him of a plastic bag, which only contained a pack of Excelsior Water Crackers, was sentenced to seven years at hard labour in the Western Regional Gun Court on Tuesday.

The convicted man is 22-year-old Ricardo Irving, a labourer of Salt Spring, in St James. According to reports, in late 2016, the elderly man was walking along the main road in the Cornwall Courts Housing Scheme, when Irving and three other armed men held him up at gunpoint and took away the bag.


According to the victim, he had gone to a nearby shop where he had purchased the crackers, and was on his way back home when he was accosted.


It is believed that the men thought the bag contained money as the victim said one of them said: “Gimme de money bwoy,” before snatching the bag from him.
