Student attempts to steal from driving instructor

An unemployed 16-year-old has to successfully complete 120 hours of community service if he wants to keep his criminal record clean.

Jadane Curtis Tyrique Scantlebury of Taylor’s Land, Fairfield, St Michael pleaded guilty to a trespassing offence when he went before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant Monday.

The teen confessed that on June 10 he entered the house of Shurland Boyce as a trespasser with intent to commit theft.

According to the facts presented by prosecutor Sergeant Cameron Gibbons, the complainant was Scantlebury’s driving instructor.

On the mentioned date Boyce was at home when Scantlebury opened his back door and entered. The homeowner confronted the teen who ran away.

Boyce later contacted police and Scantlebury was taken into custody where he admitted to committing the offence and was charged.

When the magistrate asked him whether he had anything to say in his defence, Scantlebury said “no”.

However, the young man, who is not known to the law courts, later apologized for his action.

A probation officer who interviewed Scantlebury then advised the court on the amount of community service to be imposed before it was enforced by the magistrate.

Scantlebury returns to court on October 6 to give an update of his service.

    He got charge for ATTEMPTING TO STEAL ??? sounds like he only entered the mans’ house without permission…TRESPASSING …..but it appears that he is accustom to going there and through the back door too and waiting until the instructor is ready.

    It seems that many parts to this story has been left out…did he take something? If so, what? Why would he even wanna go there when someone is home if his intent was to steal?

    The boy went in at the back door,consider this,if you live at the house you go in at the back,but if you coming to my house ,come at the front or the side.

    Unless you have experienced a home robbery you may not be able to understand how this feels, but if a man comes through your back door, he could have three intentions, one is to steal, two is to get away after, and three to make sure nothing stops him from getting away…I always contend that a thief will kill. That is and will always be my view

    Look at all these people here trying to defend the trespasser’s actions. Tsk tsk. I hope if they see someone inside their home without an invite, they welcome them with open arms.

    Crazy society we living in when a person who enters your home without permission is seen as the victim and has so many defenders to his action.
