Woman admits stealing handbag


A social inquiry report was ordered for a woman who admitted possession of a stolen handbag.

Zyanne Lima, 20, pleaded guilty in Magistrates’ Court yesterday to possession of goods that she knew to be stolen.

The court heard that police found the Louis Vuitton handbag during a search on Lima’s Pembroke home on November 19 last year for a separate incident. It matched the description of a bag stolen on October 1.

Lima told police that she bought the handbag and did not know it was stolen, but refused to say where she bought it from.

Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe released Lima on $2,800 bail, the original value of the bag, and adjourned the case until April 7 for sentencing.
