Man in court for smashing bathroom sink

A 31-year-old St George's man admitted smashing a Bermuda Housing Corporation sink when he appeared in Magistrates' Court this morning.

Graison McCallan pleaded guilty to causing unlawful damage on the second floor bathroom of Langley House in St David's, on October 15.

The court heard that McCallan could be seen entering the building on video footage with a cricket bat.

Once inside the building he proceeded to the second floor bathroom, where he cracked a sink, causing damage in the amount of $975.

He then left the building but attended Southside Police Station upon hearing the police were seeking to locate him.

McCallan told the court that he believed a resident of Langley House had broken into his home.

He said: “My house had been broken into twice that week and I lost it.”

When Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo asked the defendant why he targeted the sink, McCallan replied that he thought it wiser to damage a sink than hurt a person.

Mr Tokunbo ordered McCallan to pay off the damages in weekly instalments of $100, starting January 5.
