At 59, Karen Ann Haynes admitted to a court that she is a recovering drug addict and is looking for a job.
She made the confession when she appeared before Magistrate Graveney Bannister in the Traffic Court and pleaded guilty to stealing powder and eyeliner worth $16 from No. 1 Beauty Supplies, on January 26, 2019.
Haynes, of Garden Land, Country Road, St Michael, also admitted that marijuana was her drug of choice, adding “I don’t have a drug problem anymore. I have been off for about a year.”
In reprimanding and discharging her, Magistrate Bannister warned: “Stay away from No 1 Beauty Supplies. Do not venture there. Go and find honest work.”
