Graffiti man admits damaging Dunkley’s truck
A man who admitted he spray-painted obscenities on a Dunkley’s Dairy truck on the day of last year’s General Election has been referred to the Mental Health Court.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo also ordered a social inquiry report on 25-year-old Khayriek Woolridge, who pleaded guilty to causing wilful damage.
Magistrates’ Court heard Woolridge was arrested after police received a report of a man burning One Bermuda Alliance election placards near Kilderry Estate in Devonshire on July 18 last year.
He was later taken to the Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute, where he is an outpatient.
Police were told of graffiti spray-painted on a truck at Dunkley’s Dairy, also in Devonshire, later the same day.
Woolridge, who was recorded on CCTV at the scene, was later traced to Elliot School and admitted vandalising the vehicles.
The court heard he told police he painted “Go PLP” and “F**k OBA” on the side of the truck because he “wanted to tell Dunkley that PLP were going to win”.
