‘Robin Hood’ thief is unrepentant
An unrepentant “Robin Hood” has been jailed for 30 days after stealing $35 worth of food and liquor from a supermarket, even as staff implored him not to get in trouble.
Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner heard that Kevin Webb, 49, of no fixed abode, told police after his arrest: “I am a revolutionary; I am Robin Hood. I steal from the rich and give to the needy. I told Warner I won’t stop, and if you let me out I will do it again.”
Mr Warner responded: “You’re quite right. You told me that you were Robin Hood — and I told you I’m the Sheriff of Nottingham.”
According to Crown counsel Larissa Burgess, Webb was arrested for taking a $22.50 bottle of rum and $13 worth of food from Miles Market on January 10.
Webb was known to security, who contacted the store’s assistant manager after he entered at 6.20pm.
The accused ordered food and picked up a bottle of liquor, the court heard, and walked toward the exit with both.
According to Ms Burgess, the assistant manager told him: “Kevin, don’t do it”, to which Webb answered: “I will” and left the store. He was arrested by police on Pitt’s Bay Road.
Webb is also facing trial on February 1 for cursing at police on October 21.
