A 39-year-old man who pleaded guilty to a theft charge will spend the next three weeks at the Psychiatric Hospital being evaluated before he is sentenced.
Steve Gordon Miller, of Garden Land, Country Road, St Michael admitted before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant today to stealing a $700 cellular phone belonging to a minor on February 18‑.
Police Constable Kenmore Phillips revealed that the teenager was in the bathroom of a local restaurant when the accused walked in. He however, left the device in the bathroom on walking out. The minor returned moments later but the phone was no longer where he had left it. A check of the footage at the establishment showed Miller walking out of the bathroom with the device.
The police were informed and Miller was seen the following night at St Lawrence Gap where he told lawmen he had sold the phone.
Miller will reappear before the No. 2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on March 12.
