A Christ Church man is spending six months behind bars for stealing three chocolate bars from Shopsmart.
Ryan Oneil Pilgrim, a resident of Inch Marlow, appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the No. 2 District ‘A’ Criminal Court on Monday, a day after stealing the items.
Prosecutor Sergeant Cameron Gibbons explained that an officer in plain clothes, who was a customer in the store when the incident occurred, caught Pilgrim in the act.
In an attempt to explain his actions, Pilgrim told the court he was under the influence of alcohol at the time.
However, Magistrate Cuffy-Sargeant reminded Pilgrim of his long history of theft-related convictions and that he was currently on a 12-month bond from another court, before sentencing him.
