Court House-general2A 20-year-old man charged with two armed hold-ups of service stations, and a charge of demanding cash with intent to steal it, was remanded in custody at the Christchurch District Court today.

Te Arimoana Jamyle Simon allegedly used an air pistol to rob about $1000 from the Caltex Russley Service Station in the early hours of November 5.

On November 7 he was allegedly armed with a knife when he stole a small amount of cash and tobacco from the Mobil Redwood Service Station, and later demanded cash from the Harewood Road Super Liquor store.

Duty lawyer Clare Yardley told the court Simon was not asking for bail today, but would apply for it when a lawyer was assigned to him.

Judge Christopher Somerville remanded Simon in custody until December 2, but said he could apply for bail from the prison by video-link before that date when he had a lawyer arranged.
