A 58-year-old man, who was released from prison four days ago, was today sentenced to 12 more months in Dodds.
Well known thief Anthony St Clair Hunte, of Headley’s Land, Bank Hall, St Michael, pleaded guilty to stealing two chocolates worth $5.50 from Dollarwise Incorporated on December 2.
He entered the Swan Street store around 2 p.m. on the day in question and was observed by a security officer putting the confectionery in his pockets.
Hunte reportedly told the guard he was hungry; hence his reason for taking the items.
However, when he appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the No. 2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today he explained that he had a drug problem and requested drug rehabilitation.
Before sentencing him to prison, the magistrate noted that Hunte had amassed quite a history of theft.
