Maximiliano Morey, a 21-year-old security guard and resident of  Ladyville finds, himself in trouble with the law after he made the mistake of taking his BEL Supervisor’s 2010 D-Max pick-up truck from his work compound on Saturday, August 26, 2017 without authority.

On August 29, 2017, Morey appeared unrepresented before the acting Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser where he was read a single charge of taking conveyance without authority, a charge he pleaded guilty to.

On Saturday, August 26, 2017, he took a pick-up truck without authority from Patrick Perriott, Supervisor of BEL’s Security Section. According to Morey, his relief was taking too long to come and he didn’t know that taking the vehicle would have been a problem.

According to Perriott, he received a call on Saturday from security officer Francis Lemoth that Morey had taken the vehicle. Perriott instructed Morey to take the vehicle to the Ladyville Police station where he handed over the keys. Perriott officially reported the situation and requested court action against Morey.

Luckily for Morey, a first time offender, the offense usually carries a $1,000 fine rather than imprisonment. Given that Morey pleaded guilty, he was only imposed a non-custodial fine of $500 plus a $5 cost of court to be paid by October 31, 2017 in default of 6 months’ imprisonment.
