Carter steals dream box and jewellery

COURT TODAY BLOCKA burglar was sentenced Tuesday for two burglaries he committed back in 2009.

Roger Dale Carter of Lakes, St Andrew changed his plea today before Acting Chief Magistrate Douglas Frederick in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court.

The 45-year-old admitted to entering Anthony Hoyte’s house and stealing a dream box worth $650 on March 24, 2009 and exactly a week later, breaking into Shaka Moore’s home and stealing jewellery valued at $2,350.

None of the items was recovered, Station Sergeant Neville Watson told the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court Tuesday.

However, he reported that the complainant had secured his home everywhere except the kitchen window. Hoyte returned to find the mesh from that window missing, as well as the dream box, which he had left in his front bedroom.

Meanwhile, Moore also secured her home and went out but returned to see her home disturbed and jewellery missing.

A fingerprint found at the scene matched Carter’s who had entered and exited  Moore’s home through the bathroom window.

Carter, who is known to the court, is currently serving a ten-year sentence for aggravated burglary, which ends next December.

Frederick also considered Carter’s guilty plea and the fact that he was on remand since 2010 in relation to the two matters.

He was then sentenced him to six months on each offence, to run concurrently.
