Thief caught while posing as a hotel guest

A 40-year-old cocaine addict, who pleaded guilty to theft, will spend the next three weeks at the Psychiatric Hospital.

Gaylan Alphonso Marshall, of no fixed place of abode, consented to an assessment by doctors at the institution today after his attorney, Mohia Ma’at, appealed for help for his client who had admitted to stealing two hand towels, four soaps, five bottles of mouth wash, three rolls of toilet paper, one body cleanser, five bottles of water and two boxes of tissue worth $78.30, belonging to the Hilton Hotel.

Security personnel became suspicious
when they spotted Marshall on the eighth floor of the hotel yesterday, carrying two bags. He was questioned and asked whether he needed help.

Putting on an American accent, Marshall answered that he was a guest at the establishment and was on his way to visit friends at Worthing, Christ Church.

Police were called in and Marshall was arrested after he could not give an account of the items, which he later admitted to taking from a storage room on the eighth floor of the luxury resort.

Ma’at told Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant his client was a former waiter and server who has been “sliding down hill” since losing his job last year.

“He found himself using not a little spliff, but dope. He says it is out of control and he would like his life back,” Ma’at told the magistrate while appealing for the first time offender to be considered for drug rehabilitation at Verdun House.

Marshall returns to court on December 1 to find out whether he qualifies for the programme.

      Alex Jordan I knew this guy a long time and one thing I can say is he is always looking for work when he isn’t actually working in the area he is qualified in which is a waiter. Good man right here. It is sad to see though how funny most would find his situation to be, he had some rough times like everyone else and he decided to handle it how he wanted to. Not everyone handles things the same. Cocaine addiction is no joke and I hope he gets all the help he can get because I know for a fact he is way better than this and I wish him all the best.
