Court: 52-Year-Old Man Admits Stealing Tools

May 23, 2016

Appearing in Magistrates Court this morning [May 23], a 52-year-old man pleaded guilty to stealing tools from a store.

Mr Raymond Robinson plead guilty to stealing a Black & Decker drill and some Craftsman tools from the Marketplace and Sears stores earlier this month. The drill was said to be valued at $73 and the tools at $53.

According to the Crown Prosecutor, shop staff had pre-identified Mr Robinson from a ‘watch out for this person’ list posted by the store’s management.

Shop staff were able to use the store’s CCTV system to see what Mr Robinson did. He was seen putting the drill under his shirt, and the tools in his pants front, then getting out without paying.

Once police had arrested and questioned Mr Robinson, he admitted the two thefts.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo reviewed Mr Robinson’s criminal record and commented that his long record showed that he had a propensity to shoplift food items.

Mr Robinson told the Magistrate that he had kept himself out of jail for the past two years, but had not worked in five months. He said that he had stolen the items with the intent to sell them and thus buy food.

The Magistrate ordered Social Inquiry and BARC reports and set sentencing for mid-July. Mr Robinson was granted $1,000 bail.
