The three men, including a Jamaica Labour Party ( JLP) activist, charged in connection with the multimillion-dollar robbery at the Swiss Stores in downtown Kingston are to return to court today.




Charged with robbery with aggravation, illegal possession of firearm and conspiracy to commit robbery are JLP activist Kayon ‘Treasure’ Campbell and St Catherine resident Norman Robertson.



The other accused, businessman Donald Ho, is charged with receiving stolen goods and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.



Campbell and Ho have been offered bail, while Robertson remains in custody.



In April, the Swiss Stores was robbed of high-end watches and other valuables reportedly worth more than $7 million.



Some of the watches have been recovered by the police.
