Stolen plantains

Three men accused of stealing produce

Three men have been remanded to Dodds prison on loitering and praedial larceny charges.

They are 39-year-old Omar McDonald Sealy, of Clifton Hill, St Thomas; 32-year-old Corey Omar Nicholls, of Sugar Hill, St Joseph and 28-year-old Rayon Andrew Boyce, of Charles Row Bridge, St George.

The trio was held after Wayne Clarke, who is the caretaker of Manor Farms in Walkes Spring, St Thomas, installed cameras on the property, which has been susceptible to crop theft over the past two years.

On viewing the closed circuit television footage, Clarke noticed two men, one later identified as Sealy, going into his plantain patch with a cutlass and bag. Sealy was later taken into custody and admitted to stealing 17 bunches of plantains from the business between November 20 and 21.

He has therefore been sentenced to six months in prison.

However, Magistrate Ian Weekes reserved judgment on Nicholls, who pleaded guilty to loitering on Clarke’s premises, and Boyce, who admitted to stealing the plantains.

They will know their fate on December 11.

    I notice the “political yardfowls” that jump ship and now hanging on to MIA apron string looking for a “big-pick” if and when she is called to office, is defending the actions of the same man.
