A Browne’s Avenue man charged with the attempted arson at a service station has been remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison, until next year.
Forty-one-year-old Everette Jerome Spencer was sent to prison yesterday when he appeared in the St. John’s Magistrates’ Court, before Magistrate Conliffe Clarke. He is scheduled to reappear on March 21, 2018.
Spencer is accused of attempting to set fire to a generator room at Everyday Service Station, located on Independence Drive, last week Tuesday.
Firefighters from the St. John’s Fire Station responded to an emergency call on November 29, from the service station. The caller indicated that someone set two five gallon buckets, next to a generator room, on fire.
The blaze caused damage to a nearby water tank but was eventually put out by the firefighters. The accused was questioned in connection with the incident and on Monday police charged him with the crime.
He was not represented by legal counsel when he appeared in court for the first time to answer the charge.
