A quantity of the jewelry was recovered.
When he appeared in court, he was not called upon to plead as the charges were laid indictably.
Nurse was represented by attorney Martin George. An application for bail was made on behalf of Nurse, but was denied by the court since records revealed that he had four pending matters before the court for larceny, common assault and robbery with aggravation and one previous conviction for possession of marijuana.
He was remanded into custody and is scheduled to reappear in court on March 20, 2020.
Sgt Wilson of the Shirvan Road Police Station laid the charges.
Police said they are still in search of another suspect in connection with the robbery. Investigations are continuing.
