Bread thief sent to jail

COURT TODAY BLOCKA man who stole bread from a popular Whitehall, St Michael bread shop has been jailed for two months.

Samuel Omar Kumar Manohar Harris of Fairfield, Black Rock, St Michael, admitted to committing the offence last Wednesday.

The District ‘A’ Magistrates Court No. 2 heard how the bakery was secured last Tuesday night. However, by the time Gloria Worrell awoke the next morning and checked her stock, three packs of currant slices, two packages of turnovers and two sweet breads were missing. The items were worth $19.65.

When the businesswoman reviewed the security footage she recognized a man who frequents her establishment.

Interviewed later, Harris admitted to police that he took the bread and ate it all.

    After reviewing the security footage I would not have called the police. What I would have done instead was spoken to the guy and let him know that I knew it was him. Would have told him that if things were tight and he needed something to eat from the bakery that I will give him but if he attempts to rob from me again then I will turn him over to the authorities. Things real hard out there for ppl

    if given a choice of paying $90 a week x 8 weeks to keep this non-violent person in Dodds for stealing $19.00 in bread or giving this person community service, which would the taxpayers prefer?

    Dont the magistrates and judges know the populace prefer extreme crimes and violent offenders in jail and not this buffoon?

    Secondly, I dont think a magistrate or judges time is usefully spent adjudicating these frivolous crimes.

    As to the man who stole the bread and ate it all,, hes either a glutten, very hungry or both and shouldnt steal. There is salvation army and countless wild “bread-fruit”(excuse the pun) trees around the place.

    And let me just add,,there is no one who enters a food establishment and asks me for food and I will say no,,i may not give you $ in or outside but i will never refuse to buy you a meal, so he could have asked the owner since he frequents the place.

    Another instance of wasting the taxpayers money on frivolity.

    On the other hand the Magistrate may have looked at this from another point of view.

    Sending this hungry man to jail will ensure he gets three square meals a day for 2 months.

    Some Community service should have sufficed , but it seem obvious to me that crime does not suit the punishment in Barbados. The Justice system is flawed with a capital F .
    I would think that this man was hungry and could have been given a suspended sentence in still of jail time.

    Well ,what are bajans expecting when we have such a flaude nation ,when the label is there so exposing the them and us society ,its so hard to see how simple issues ends up as top issues in the media..

    Who do we depend on to evenly dispense justice as local as it happens, as simple as it is to people who are not really criminals but is just trying to survive day by day in our so call Christian society. I wouldn’t call him a fool but circumstance and character dictates who we are.. why couldn’t he have just be bound over to keep the peace for 4 months..

    As simple as this case maybe, it exposes our Barbados , it expose white and black, as like white walking into a posh shop stealing expense shirts and getting , a pat on the bum for being a naughty boy, again this is where we are ..sad. Are we forgetting where we came from and how we got here , but although we can do better and we condemn, we are still being envied for our way of life..

    Old report 2014

    That is $5000 for two months when other community type orders could be considered. They have laid off a lot of key people in relation to our drain clearance and our roads.

    This is just crazy…. smh
