Three plead guilty to burglary

COURT TODAY BLOCKA security system which a burglar thought he had destroyed came back to tie him and two other accomplices to their crime.

The three young men from Pinelands, St Michael who burglarised a shop and stole numerous bottles of liquor, will be sentenced when they return to the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court on February 22.

Keshawn Leroy Greene, of #7 Shepton Lane, Darian Ronald Nurse, 20, of Straffors Hill and Terrel Timothy Rashad Cumberbatch, 19, of No. 2 Golden Ridge, all confessed to the crime late Monday afternoon before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.

They entered T’s Sweet Spot as trespassers on December 23 and stole 12 bottles of whiskey, 11 bottles of brandy, 4 bottles of Vodka, 37 bottles of rum, 24 bottles of energy drink, 2 hams, 12 lighters, 5 cartons of cigarettes and a security system belonging to Natasha Joseph. The items were worth $3 111. 00 in total.

Police investigated the matter and later found 11 bottles of Old Brigand rum at Greene’s home and one bottle of vodka and two bottles of whiskey at Cumberbatch’s.    

In the facts which Station Sergeant Irvin Kellman read to the court, the shop, which is attached to Joseph’s house, was secured before she went to bed. Hours later, a neighbour alerted her that the shop appeared as though it had been broken into.

When Joseph checked, she realised that the listed items were missing; further, a security camera showed three men inside the shop removing items.

Magistrate Cuffy-Sargeant asked Nurse yesterday whose idea the break-in was. Nurse said Cumberbatch was the mastermind.

Cumberbatch’s reason for carrying out the burglary was that he wanted money. He also explained why he “lick down” the security system in the shop with a stick and “throw it in the grass” because he knew it would “see” him.

    Get them out there cleaning and debushing the roads and areas where vegetation is growing wild. No more lying around in prison. Lots of hard work for these idiots. Make them know what it’s like to work and feel so exhausted that crime would be the last thing they would want to do when their time is served.

    Chain all three vagabonds put them to tidy up the areas with over grown grass and when they’re finish that job, put them to plant sweet potato slip. It’s about time the lawless are made to work and pay the victims compensation. Today’s young and senior criminals are immune to jail it is seen as a status symbol something to be proud of. Hard Labour would make a great adjustment and bring them back down to earth.
