Bajan man slashed tyres on 89 cars

(Barbados Nation) Nicholas Brian Bishop was so angry after he was caught trying to steal a boat engine on June 16 that he went through four St James neighbourhoods and slashed the tyres on 89 vehicles.

The anger, he said, was fuelled because the boat owner had also lashed him on his right hand with a sharp instrument.

Seeming unremorseful, the 32-year-old man of Haynesville, St James, pleaded guilty again and again when Magistrate Barbara Cooke-Alleyne read out 35 charges to him when he appeared at the Holetown Magistrates’ Court yesterday evening.

Thirty-one of the charges were for slashing the tyres between June 16 and 17.

Ironically, police investigations led to his arrest after he attempted to steal an antenna from a St Thomas home last week.
