Kayon ‘Treasure’ Campbell is jointly charged with businessman Donald Ho and St Catherine resident Norman Robertson.

The case against them could not go ahead this week as the prosecution is yet to serve files on the defence.

Bail has been extended for Campbell and Ho however Robertson has been further remanded.

All three men are before the Gun Court.

Campbell and Robertson are charged with robbery with aggravation, illegal possession of a firearm and conspiracy to commit robbery, while Ho is charged with receiving stolen goods and illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.

They were arrested on April 18 following an operation by the Flying Squad.

The Swiss Stores was robbed of 23 high-end watches and other items reportedly valued at more than seven million dollars.
