When an 18-year-old realised that her actions at an electronic store were making the rounds on social media she immediately tried to get rid of the stolen items.
However, Trekida Ansha Trinika Worrell of Greenwich, St James said she did not notice that one of the six headphones that she stole from Mobile City on May 22 was still in her bag.
It was discovered when police executed a search warrant at her house and showed her the footage obtained from the store.
Sergeant St Clair Phillips disclosed that Worrell entered the establishment, which is equipped with a number of CCTV cameras and was observed taking up the earphones worth $60 and two data cables worth $20 and concealing them in her bag before leaving.
“I won’t do it no more,” Worrell told Magistrate Douglas Frederick adding, “When I get home and I saw the video, I throw it away and there was one in the bag that I didn’t know about.”
Officer Phillips told the magistrate that the video had gone viral.
Her surety, who requested that the first time offender be placed on a daily curfew, revealed that Worrell suffers from anti social personality disorder and was not taking her medication.
A presentencing report has been ordered on her and the teenager must now adhere to a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew.
Worrell who returns before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on July 26 is on $750 bail in the meantime.
