Jamaican Marjorie AnnMarie Campbell is to be placed on the next available fight home.
Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant today ordered that the 46-year-old babysitter who resided at Charles Rowe Bridge, St George be deported after she admitted to theft.
Campbell, who had been in the country since February 2013 and was given a six-month stay but failed to regularise her status after it expired pleaded guilty to stealing a number of food items including, chicken, lamb, cheese, pigtails, salt fish and chocolate mix from Popular Discounts on February 15. They were valued at $129.40.
She apologised for her actions in the No. 2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.
Police prosecutor Victoria Taitt revealed that Campbell entered the store around 11 a.m. and was kept under observation by a security officer.
She went through the aisles picking up the items as well as to the area of the meats. At one point she was seen putting some of the items in a green Popular Discounts reusable bag. The convicted woman then went to the cashier and paid for some items and when she tried to leave, a search was requested and the groceries that she had not paid for were found in the reusable bag and in another plastic bag.
