Man fined for supermarket theft

A man has admitted stealing $37 worth of goods from the MarketPlace in Sandys.

Trenton Brangman, 25, was also charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice by giving a false name and address to police.

Crown Prosecutor Nicole Smith told the court how Brangman was observed by the MarketPlace manager putting some items into his shopping cart, while placing other items into a backpack.

The manager approached Brangman as he attempted to pay only for the items in his cart. Brangman later admitted to stealing three sticks of deodorant, two mangoes, six apples, one Tropicana orange juice and one bag of ShopRite mozzarella cheese.

When police officers arrived on the premises, Brangman gave a false name and said he was from New Jersey, but was subsequently found to be living with his girlfriend on Quarry Road in Hamilton Parish.

Brangman was fined $1,300 by Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo.
