Hollingsworth held with bag of fruits

COURT TODAY BLOCKTrevor Antonio Hollingsworth was reprimanded and discharged after appearing in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today.

The 45-year-old pleaded guilty before Magistrate Douglas Frederick to loitering along Jackson Main Road, St. Michael yesterday, where police saw him laden with a number of bags and going towards Melrose, St Thomas.

The cops were patrolling the area when Hollingsworth looked towards them and then disappeared from view. They became suspicious and went after him, catching up with him further along Jackson.

When the lawmen enquired about his earlier behaviour and asked him to account for it, Hollingsworth became agitated and told police he had a quantity of fruit in the bags, which he had hidden.

Police asked to see the bags and Hollingsworth retrieved them from behind a wall.

When they were examined, one contained a large quantity of limes and the other mangoes, which Hollingsworth said he got “from behind the old farm in Jackson”.

The police asked him to show them the farm and Hollingsworth escorted them to a bushy area where not a single fruit tree was present.

Further, when the officers made several stops and enquiries in Jackson, no one knew Hollingsworth either.

    “The 45-year-old pleaded guilty before Magistrate Douglas Frederick to loitering along Jackson Main Road, St. Michael yesterday, where police saw him laden with a number of bags and going towards Melrose, St Thomas.”…….

    How could one be “loitering” yet still be “going towards Melrose, St. Thomas” which suggests movement.

    I may have missed it, but was it between 6.00pm and 6.00am that he was arrested? If not how could it be “loitering’?

    Carson, are you challenging the reporting, or the constablary?

    I would like the “reporting” to question the constablary more. How can you be “loitering” and yet be on the move? Unless there is a new charge called “Moving loitering”.
