St Michael resident Ramon Akeem Quarless will spend the next nine months in prison at HMP Dodds for loitering on the premises of West Indies Biscuit Company Limited.
Prosecutor Sergeant Cameron Gibbons said the 25-year-old of Harmony Hall, Hindsbury Road was found in a compactor at the Gills Road, Bridgetown company yesterday.
Quarless was discovered in the machine where expired snacks and biscuits are stored after an employee informed the manager that he had seen an unknown man entering the compactor.
He was unable to give a satisfactory explanation when asked why he was there.
However, when the police were called in, Quarless reportedly said that he had “just smoke some cocaine and was hungry” and as a result “jumped over the fence to get something to eat”.
When Quarless, who is known to the law courts, appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, he pleaded guilty, explaining he did not want to waste the court’s time.
