Moore held for $13.95 deodorant

A 42-year-old man, of no fixed place of abode, will call HMP Dodds home for the next 12 months.

Andrew Sylvester Moore, who was recently released from the St Philip penal institution, pleaded guilty to stealing a $13.95 pack of deodorant from Popular Discounts on December 2.

Moore was captured after a shopper informed the security guard of his actions.

He was stopped, searched and the hygiene product was found.

“Please, please, I want a fine and I will pay it,” Moore, who is well known to the court for theft, pleaded with the magistrate as he informed her of his desire not to return to prison.

However, he was jailed for the offence.

    Millions of Tax Payer’s money is missing but there is NO acknowledgement to that…..Seriously $13.95 – a shop is winging about that ?

    This place is the “funniest place on earth”

    Wunna real cant be serious about printing such rubbish. People are dying. No proper investigation is made. Journalists report the start, the middle and the end of a story.

    Losing $13.95 is hardly worth putting on the Internet. Lets deal with the tax payer’s money that’s missing !!

      For a year?
      Probably about the same as one sitting of parliament and the actual work done will be about the same.

    What a poor exchange? Put the man in the mental and get him a psychiatrist. Prison is not for him; a petty thief only. Huh

    Looks like a lot more people in Bim getting locked up for stealing life’s essential products. That’s not a good sign, products are getting more and more expensive and people are becoming more desperate trying to survive. Remember great civilizations fall when the Gap between the haves and the have nots become to great.

    I would summons them to take a free 3 months course at skills training learning how to operate a weed wacker. The next six months a small supervisory team accompanying them on some select govt sites ,to do some real community service- work out the chocolates, the sweat will deal with the deodorant and perfume.

    For this fellow I have a heart! He just did not want the girls and other citizens to tell him he smelt ! I hope he apologizes to the magistrate and ask for pardoning but reading along I see that he is a repeat offender so its left up to the magistrate’s decision. I would like to suggest a working camp where these guys are given cosmetics and toiletries on a monthly basis.

    There is one law for men and another for women.

    A woman stole $167.97 in perfume from Cave Shepherd and was given a six month sentence.

    A man stole $13.95 in perfume and was given twelve months in prison.

    Men are really unfaired in Barbados.

      What I don’t understand is the people at Popular caught him and got back the deodorant. I will guess it was not used and as such most likely will be restocked on the shelf for resale. I have seen lawyers who have stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars, have a case brought against them and come to the court and say that they have returned the money. The court said since the accusers accepted the returned money the cases will not proceed any further and the cases were dismissed and the lawyers walked out of the courts free. What is the difference here that lands this man in jail and the lawyers go free? I may be wrong but were there not similar allegations made against a sitting Speaker of the House?
