Twenty three year old Rocky Road resident, Kermick Adolphus Shabazz was sentenced to one year in prison after he pleaded guilty to theft and handling stolen goods. As a result Magistrate Carlon Mendoza imposed on him the one year prison term.

Shabazz was accused of stealing a $225.00 LCD Panasonic TV and a remote valued $50.00,from his employer businesswoman, Pawan Thadani. In a report to police, Thadani, who owns a shop on the Phillip Goldson Highway reported to police that on February 18, 2016, at around 9:00 p.m., upon her arrival at her store noticed that her television was missing from her business. A statement was recorded and police investigation led to the arrest of Shabazz who at the time was an employee who took police to his home where they recovered the TV. Thadani positively identified the television to police as hers.

In court, Shabazz told Magistrate Carlon Mendoza that he took the television from the store room at Thadani’s business. He told the court, “they find it on me. I did it. I am being honest.”

Magistrate Mendoza imposed a 1 year sentence on him for each count and ordered that the sentences run concurrently hence he will only serve one year of the two year prison term.
