Entered pharmacy to steal but had scarf pulled off his face by an employee

Silvio Camilleri, aged 35 and a resident of Gżira, was accused that during the middle of last week he carried out an aggravated theft with violence from a pharmacy in Ta’ Xbiex, of detaining two persons against their will and of being in possession of an unlicenced firearm.

The Court heard that the man’s identity was revealed when a pharmacy employee pulled off a scarf which was concealing his face. After running off he left the empty cash box on the corner of the street. Police Inspectors Fabian Fleri, Lydon Zammit and Colin Sheldon also testified that on the following day he tried to rob an 18-year-old girl of her money as she was walking along Triq Luqa Briffa in Gżira, causing her wounds. The Police charged Camilleri with having breached Court Orders while being conditionally freed on other cases and of being a repeat offender.

In Court, Camilleri, who is unemployed, entered a plea of not guilty. Magistrate Simone Grech ordered the man be detained under arrest and recommended he be given treatment for his drug abuse.
