Man bonded for loitering

A District ‘A’ Magistrate today heard that a middle age man, who appeared in court for loitering as a suspected bottles thief, had done it before.

In fact, Peter Samuel James, 53, of 3rd Avenue Goodland, St Michael, had recently completed a three-month bond on a similar offence.

So after he pleaded guilty before Magistrate Douglas Frederick to his latest offence that happened today, James was placed on another three-month bond to keep the peace.

If he breaches this, the presiding judicial officer warned him, he would have to spend three months behind bars.

James was charged with loitering on the premises of the Shallow Draft, Spring Garden, raising suspicion that he was about to commit an offence of theft.

    That should also apply to government staff that supposed to be carrying out repairs on the pavement in front of Guardian Group. 9 am One work man seated in the chair under the tree and foot resting on the tree trunk his four colleagues loitering and one working. One one wage should be paid. The others should charged for fraud. Bare foolishness going on in Barbados and it is not going to get any better.

    The man was caught picking up a bottle, sounds as though all he was doing was walking around collecting bottles. This may very well be what he does for added income. If that’s the case I don’t see anything wrong with him picking bottles. The man was only suspected of wanting to do something illegal. This man has already been labeled therefore he will.more than likely be facing these consequences regardless to if he breaks the law or not. Walking around collecting bottles is now a crime?
