Alleged Armed Robber Jailed
Lewis Ben or David Lewis, notoriously known by his peers as Color-Boy Monday, landed at the Monrovia Central Prison Compound after being investigated by the Liberia National Police on allegation of armed robbery.
The complaint was filed by one James Johnson and other residents of Weaver Street in Paynesville.
Complainant Johnson told the police that on April 6, 2011 at about 23:00 hrs, some unknown men well armed with cutlasses as well as other deadly weapons gained entry into his compound by removing the razor wire over the fence.
The police investigation revealed that the victim informed them that he knew about the incident of the armed robbery when one of his boys, named Jones Freeman, called him via mobile phone to inform him that some robbers have entered their yard.
Police said during their probe with the suspect, he admitted and named his alleged accomplices as Jerome and Pegphy.
Giving details of their operation, police said defendant Color-Boy told the investigators that the plan was made at the Gorbachop Market, where one of the accused, now at large, provided a flash light.
