Also, a stick with 2 hooks attached to both ends was found.

Members of the police force went on patrol around the area and found the defendant on Hillsborough Street and when he was informed of the report made against him he said “officer I do not know anything about that”.

When the defendant was brought against the complainant at the premises, Vivil stated that it was not him. He was then arrested on suspicion.

When asked by Magistrate Evelina Baptiste is there anything the defendant would like to say, he replied “He Is willing to repay everything he stole and he would like the magistrate to be lenient towards him based on the charges.”

In addition, she mentioned although the defendant has previous charges that are 10 years old and he did not waste the court’s time by pleading guilty she will also take this into consideration.

Vivil was sentenced to 7 months imprisonment.
