Men went on spending spree with stolen credit card

Three young men went on a spending spree with a stolen credit card, Magistrates’ Court heard.

Eugene Bassett and Dejuan Simons, both 23, and Denzil Chase, 18, admitted charges relating to the crime, which took place on December 12 last year.

The court has previously heard a backpack containing the credit card was taken from American tourists Krissana Nakjoo-Dezevallos and her husband Geoffrey Dezevallos as they visited Shelly Bay.

Yesterday, the court was told the trio used the credit card to buy pizza from nearby Pizza House, before heading to Boyle’s shoe shop, the English Sports Shop, Belvin’s store and Egmont’s gift shop. In total, the goods they obtained had a value of more than $500.

Bassett and Simons, both from Ducks Puddle Drive, Hamilton Parish, pleaded guilty to obtaining property by deception, dishonestly receiving stolen goods, and attempting to receive property by deception.

Chase, of North Shore Road, Hamilton Parish, admitted two counts of obtaining property by deception.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner sentenced all three to probation for two years, noting they had shown remorse and cooperated with the police.
