Appearing in Magistrates Court, a 33-year-old man pleaded guilty to stealing cash from a staff member’s handbag at school.

Hamilton Parish resident Andre Castle  pleaded guilty, with the Court hearing that the teacher had the money in her handbag which was in a desk drawer in her primary school classroom.

After school ended, she collected her handbag and discovered that her $200 had disappeared. She reported the matter. Police investigations, questioning, and a review of the school’s CCTV system revealed Castle was on the premises.
