A Christ Church teenager was yesterday ordered to perform 100 hours of community service after he pleaded guilty to theft.
Eighteen-year-old Adam Dillon Charles of BLK 1A, Green Hill Close, Silver Hill, Christ Church was charged with stealing deodorant valued at $12.99 from Massy Stores Supermarket on August 30.
Prosecutor Sergeant Martin Rock told the District “A” Magistrates Court Charles was apprehended after he was seen by the store’s security guard concealing the item as he shopped with his grandfather.
He failed to pay for the item when he approached the cashier.
Addressing Acting Chief Magistrate Douglas Frederick from the dock the young man explained that he took the item but he did not want to put his grandfather through the expense.
Charles returns to the No 1 Court on October 28.
