Nicholls to pay $500 for stealing roll-ons

COURT TODAY BLOCKStealing four bottles of Gillette roll-on deodorant ended up costing a St Joseph man $500.

Corey Omar Nicholls of Yearwood Road, Sugar Hill, St Joseph was given a week by Magistrate Douglas Frederick to come up with the fine or he will have to spend a month in prison.

The 30-year-old had pleaded guilty in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court to stealing the items valued at $51.40 from Jordan’s Supermarket on August 24.

The facts were that Nicholls went to the supermarket and purchased a few items, including milk and sugar, and then left the store. He returned afterwards to exchange the sugar for something else but was told by an employee that he could not exchange sugar.

Frustrated, Nicholls took up the deodorants, placed them in his bag and tried to leave without paying. He was seen by the security guard and held before he could leave.

The items were recovered.

    Hmm, I wonder what he wanted to exchange the sugar with….

    I could only assume that Mr.Nicholls might have been told that he could use a deodorant and he thought if he took more than one it would do the trick.
    My advice to Mr. Nicholls would be ,”take a regular shower fellow”.
