Porter walks free of theft charge

courtMagistrate Douglas Frederick today dismissed the case brought against Armande Lyndon Fenty.

The porter of Washington Avenue, Black Rock, St Michael was accused of stealing a $150 purse, three membership cards worth $150, two Barbados identification cards worth $50 and $18 in cash belonging to Wendy Bourne on June 2, 2013.

However, when the matter came up for hearing in the District ‘A’ No. 1 Court this morning, the police prosecutor informed the magistrate that Bourne was no longer interested in pursuing the case.

“In Bajan parlance she said: ‘I ain’t coming nowhere, I tell de police I ah done,’” Sergeant Neville Watson said, as he relayed Bourne’s message.

The magistrate then had no choice but to dismiss the case against Fenty.

    They must have frustrated the living daylights outta that poor woman with all of the adjournments. That happened to my neighbors. Their house was burglarized , they caught the guy, the case kept being adjourned , until my neighbors told the police , they weren’t bothering.
