Medicine thief gets requested remedy

A known thief got the chance of his life today after admitting to stealing a bottle of Paracetamol tablets from a nursery.

Last weekend, Timothy Anderson Trotman of no fixed place of abode entered The Convent Life Teaching Centre Nursery and took the $10 item.

“I have a lot of pain in my back. I was in a lot of pain . . . . I really apologize for that,” Trotman, who was 18 prior convictions including 15 for theft, told Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant this morning.

The nursery had been secured on August 12, but when one of the deacons arrived the next day, he noticed that the windows had been tampered with. Trotman was found inside in a corner, wearing gloves and holding the bottle of tablets.

Police were called in and he was arrested and charged.

“It’s over a year I haven’t been in any trouble. I admit to [the offence] . . . I asking for a chance to do something better,” Trotman said.

He was granted his wish. Trotman will avoid jail time once he keeps the peace and is on his best behavior for the next 12 months.

However, if he lands himself in trouble during that time, he will spend three months at Dodds prison.
