No laughing matter
The teenager who broke into comedian Trevor Eastmond’s home last month and stole a quantity of U.S. currency, will have to wait a little longer to know his fate.
When 19-year-old Kemo Jaleel Carter returned before the District ‘D’ Magistrates Court today, his presentencing report was not ready and he was again remanded to HMP Dodds – this time until April 21.
The Spring Farm, St Thomas barber had previously pleaded guilty to stealing US$3,000 and a wallet from Eastmond’s home on February 17.
According to the prosecutor Sergeant Glenda Carter-Nicholls, when Eastmond left his residence on that date, he closed the door but did not lock it. He later returned to find Carter and another man in his home.
He and one man struggled and after Eastmond managed to remove a scarf covering Carter’s face, he recognised the intruder and later notified police.
A search warrant executed at Carter’s home turned up US$1,080 of the stolen money.
The first-time offender, who is being represented by attorney-at-law Samuel Legay, went before Magistrate Ian Weekes today.
