After admitting that she stole three items from Do It Best Home Centre on Monday, Charmaine Elizabeth Thomas was placed on a bond to keep the peace and be of good behaviour for one year.
If the 45-year-old fails to do so, she will have to forfeit $350 immediately or alternatively, spend 28 days in prison.
Thomas, of Ocean Winds, Rockley, Christ Church went before Acting Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch today.
Sergeant Azel Skeete told the District ‘C’ Magistrates Court that the woman went into the store just after 9 a.m. Monday, bought five soaps and left. She returned soon after and the same cashier who checked her items noticed other items inside the plastic bag, which she had not checked for Thomas.
She notified management and security caught up with Thomas in another part of Sheraton Mall. They spoke to her and after searching her bag, found a can opener, a tea ball and a set of nutcrackers.
