Burglar ‘miss and brek’ into shop

COURT TODAY BLOCKIt was not Christopher Stephen Licorish’s intention but he “miss” and ended up breaking and entering a shop in Oistins.

Licorish, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to breaking and entering the business place sometime between July 29 and August 3, and having an apparatus for use in connection with cocaine on the latter date.

Appearing in the Oistins Magistrates Court Thursday before Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale, when Licorish was asked to plead to the first charge, he asked the court to let him go home.

The charge was read again, as well as the second charge, and the repeat offender admitted to both offences.

In the facts which the prosecutor outlined, police arrested Licorish in connection with another matter and while he was being searched at the Oistins Police Station, they found a small glass tube in his shirt pocket.

“Man I does use this to smoke a lil’ blackie,” he later told officers.

Station Sergeant Rudolph Burnett said that in relation to the burglary, where Licorish stole a radio, sweets, juices, two vases, wet wipes and other items, the Shalom Enterprise building at Oistins was secured on July 29.

However, the owner was later called by the owner of a neighbouring business and advised to go to her establishment, which appeared to have been broken into. On arrival she found a window and some mesh missing and reported this to the police.

A man later told her that he had seen someone inside her place and described that person to her.

Coincidentally, when the shopkeeper  was giving the police her statement, Licorish passed by the establishment and she pointed him out to the officers.

During the investigations he handed over the radio and some mints.

In speaking to the court today, Licorish told Acting Magistrate Seale that he really had no intentions of stealing anything but after going to the gas station to get food and being chased away by the attendant, “eventually the thought come to me”.

“And I miss and brek in the people place to get something to eat, Sir.”

“Miss and brek in? I know people miss and step on somebody’s toe but how you could miss and break into a place?”

“I was hungry, Sir. Uh, sorry Sir,” Licorish replied. He also said he is an outpatient at the Psychiatric Hospital and was supposed to get his medication today.

Uncertain as to what to do with Licorish, the court questioned him about who takes care of him.

He said his mother does but the court could call for his father as well. Neither parent was on the court compound so Licorish was remanded until tomorrow, while attempts will be made to contact his parents.

    Why did the attendant chase him away ? Who you think brought the thought to him to get something to eat by any means necessary ? Most people in the world is heartless so many like him will do what they have to , to get something to eat, sad indeed.
