45 Yr Old Admits Trespass, Stealing Sunglasses

December 16, 2013

A 45 year old man appeared in Magistrates Court this morning [Dec 16] where he admitted trespassing in his uncle’s home and stealing sunglasses and boots.

Richard Dill pleaded guilty to two counts of trespassing in his uncles Sandy’s Parish house. All charges related to between October and December. On the first occasion, Dill admitted to stealing a pair of boots and a pair of sunglasses.

The Crown Prosecutor told Senior Magistrate Archie Warner that Dill had been told by his family to stay away from this family residence. On the second occasion, Dill’s uncle had come home and found Dill inside the residence. Police were called and Dill was taken away.

Dill told the Magistrate that he was unemployed and hungry. On the first occasion Dill said he had entered via a sliding door and had gone into the residence in search of food.

He admitted taking the sunglasses. For the second incident, Dill denied that he had trespassed with the intent to steal but said that he had entered in search of food.

The Senior Magistrate asked Dill: “Did the food belong to you?” Dill replied: “No.” The Magistrate then said: “So you went with the intent to take food that didn’t belong to you?”

Crown Counsel told the Magistrate that at the time of the offences, Dill was on Probation and had last been released from prison in April 2013.

The Magistrate adjourned the matter for 24 hours to allow for Dill’s Probation Officer to attend Court.

    Richard you just don’t get tired do you??? You couldn’t just wait until your Uncle came home or better still went visit the person whom created you and ask them for food??!!! It’s Christmas time. I’m quite sure someone would give you a meal. Like the Soup truck, Salvation Army. Did you have to break an enter??
