Crusher Site Road, St James resident Andre Shamar Freeman today revealed that he returned to his criminal ways after he lost his job at a construction site.
The 31-year-old made the disclosure after he pleaded guilty to burglarising five places before Magistrate Douglas Frederick.
Freeman who is known to the court since 2004 admitted to entering CM Motors as a trespasser between April 14 ad 19 and stealing a $300 angle grinder; a $1,200 cooking set; five sanding disc pads worth $75 and 15 t-shirts worth $75 belonging to Jeffery Chandler.
He also pleaded guilty to entering the home of Che Cumberbatch as a trespasser between July 15 and August 31 and stealing a $300 drill, two cellular phones worth $4,300, BDS$400 and US$1,500 cash as well as the home of Rehana Horton on August 30 and stealing two tablets worth $400 and US$60 cash.
Cumberbatch, who is known for committing burglaries, also pleaded guilty to entering the home of Vicki Roach on October 1 and stealing a $400 cellular phone and three bottles of Vita Malt worth $12. He also threw in the towel to entering the home of Michelle Barrow between October 10 and 11 and stealing a $1,300 play station, four electronic games worth 716, a $150 gold ring, a $100 gold anklet, two pairs of gold earrings worth $150, two silver rings worth $80 and a pair of silver earrings worth 20.
Some items were recovered and Magistrate Douglas Frederick granted a restitution order for the items to be returned to the rightful owners.
Station Sergeant Carrison Henry said in all cases the complainants returned to find their places compromised after leaving them secured.
However, Cumberbatch’s troubles with the law are far from over as he returns before the No. 1 District ‘A’ Magistrate’s Court on November 29 accused of committing two indictable burglary offences.
