Sobers fined for theft

COURT TODAY BLOCKHad he paid for the items which he stole, Barry St Alban Sobers would have parted with $163.08.

Now, the 1st Avenue Arthur’s Land, St Michael resident has one month in which to pay a Bridgetown court $750, after admitting that he stole four bottles of capsules from the Worthing Massy Store last Saturday.

If he fails to do so, he will face three months in jail. Magistrate Douglas Frederick also placed Sobers on a three-month bond to keep the peace. Any breach will mean an equivalent time in prison.

Sergeant Martin Rock explained that when Sobers entered the supermarket on Saturday, a security guard saw when he took two bottles of Cod Liver Oil capsules and two boxes of Joint Care capsules. The guard informed the manager who then called the police.

Sobers was confronted as he was about to exit the store without paying. A search was conducted and the items found.

The repeat offender explained to the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court yesterday that he had “a serious drinking problem”.

“I was under the influence and barely coherent at that time,” Sobers said.
