A Laing Avenue man was last week fined $50,000 after pleading guilty to stealing items from a mechanic shop.
The charge stated that David Booker, 24, on September 10th 2017 at D’ Urban Street stole a Sam-sung Galaxy Cellphone valued, $20,000, an electrical drill valued, $16,000 and an angle grinder valued, $15,000.
Booker pleaded guilty to the charge and stated that at the said time he had nothing to eat and nothing for his two children to eat.
The facts in relation to the matter state that the complainant and Booker are known to each other and the complainant invited Booker to the mechanic shop to do some cleaning. The complainant left and when he returned he discovered Booker was not there and the said items were missing.
Magistrate Fabayo Azore then fined the man $50,000 or in default three months in prison.
