Court: Man Admits Stealing Cheques, Jewellery

April 9, 2018

Appearing in Magistrates Court this morning [April 9], a Pembroke man admitted breaking into a home and stealing cheques and jewellery.

Jahmeco Blakeney burgled a Pembroke property on March 27, 2018.

The 38-year-old made off with six Bank of Butterfield cheques, two gold rings, a silver watch, a gold watch and a brown envelope containing money.

Blakeney then signed one of the cheques to obtain $300 from the bank and used a second cheque to pay $600 to stay at a guest house.

He was arrested later the same day by police at the property.

Officers found the stolen items, including $165 in Bermudian currency, in his room.

When he was interviewed Blakeney admitted breaking into the property and stealing the items. He told police he had a serious drug problem and needed the money because he was hungry.

Today at Magistrates’ Court he admitted entering a property as a trespasser, making a false instrument, dishonestly obtaining a pecuniary advantage and dishonestly obtaining a service.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo bailed Blakeney to Drug Treatment Court tomorrow and ordered that pre-sentencing reports and a BARC report be prepared.
