Moore admits to stealing a cellular phone

A 42-year-old man of no known address was unrepentant yesterday as he admitted in court to stealing a mobile phone from a man he claimed was dead at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Andrew Sylvester Moore, who is serving a one-year jail sentence for a different offence, had an additional three months added to his stay at Dodds by Magistrate Douglas Frederick.

Moore was charged with stealing the $200 phone belonging to Shardae Boyce sometime between December 20 and 22 last year.

The prosecution stated that Boyce had given the phone to her father, who had been hospitalized so she could stay in touch with him, but was unable to reach him on December 22.

When she visited the QEH she was told that her father was unconscious.

Moore, was also on the ward in the bed next to Boyce’s father, and is believed to have taken the phone during that time and stored it in a bag containing his clothes.

The device was found when he was searched at the prison gate.

“Sir, I have HIV,” Moore stated, to which the magistrate asked why he was stealing.

“The man dead. He done dead,” was his unapologetic response.

    Why should they have people in jail with Aids among other people. That is spreading the virus.

    @Angus Benn: Aids is a sexually transmitted disease mate. So how can it be spread through imprisonment?

    I thought you were intelligent but I was so wrong. If you had kept silent no one would know, but you kept talking.

    My advice to you, “there’s nothing wrong with having nothing to say unless, you insist on saying nothing”.

    So where are you living Mr Greengiant, at the top of the beanstalk? We know of many who came out of the prisons and subsequently dies of AIDS.
