Man breaks into QEH canteen

COURT TODAY BLOCKA 43-year-old man, who pleaded guilty to breaking into the Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s cafeteria with intent to steal, was yesteday ordered to spend the next six months in jail.

The crime was committed by Michael Alexander Holder, of no fixed place of abode, sometime between last Sunday night and Monday morning.

Yesterday, the court heard that when the complainants, who are currently leasing the cafeteria from the QEH, left the building around 10 p.m. Sunday, everything was secured and in tact.

However, when they arrived for work around 5.15 a.m. on Monday morning, they noticed that the cash register was missing. A further check was made and the cash register was discovered on the ground broken. The entrance door to the eatery had also been pried open, which led the complainants to report the matter to police, whose investigations led then to Holder.

The man, who has a mental history, was subsequently arrested and charged.

Yesterday, he was not represented by legal counsel.

    21st century Compassionate Laws– don’t they apply to black man world–instead of wasting taxpayers money (6 months in prison) why not healing of the mind—-with the present high tec tag attach to hi/her angle –12 or more months cleaning up Barbados —–‘crime’ will become a time of the past, wasted taxpayers money can invest in fruitful Education with a Global world curriculum .

    Isn’t Barbados a Tourist destination.

    How he get 6 months when ruel ward defraud insurance companies of 4 million with his brother and in law…..He was slapped on the wrist and only paid back 1.5 or sain million……He was never given jail time…..He was allowed to keep all of his possessions. Which is worse, Stealing some food stuff worth 60 dollars or defrauding a company by virtue of fake cheqeues worth $4, 000, 000?

    Mr ward free all now……so you could have the right connections and once you steal over 4 million dollars, you get a slap on de wrist while de man who tief Lil food gain 6 munts.

    What about de Wilkinson man? Used car fraud in de millions and walking free on bail for bout 4 years. He should be soaking in jail too.

    No no, prison is not the answer. Give the guy a decent meal and bound him over. Then if he breaks his bond well then send him up.The guy is hungry, come on.
