Two Jamaican women, who were caught on camera shoplifting, have been sentenced to four months each at Her Majesty’s Prison.
Chief Magistrate Walsh handed down the sentence on Alicia Barnette, 29, and Sonia Smith, 27, both of Cooks New Extension, when they appeared in the St John’s Magistrate’s Court charged with two counts of larceny.
Police reports are that the duo, on two separate occasions on Monday, went into two stores in St John’s and stole a quantity of items.
In one incident, the women removed two bars of Roldan face Soap, one Timeless human hair Ponytail, and one nail brush valued EC $72.90 from Lucky Cosmetics on Redcliffe Street.
They were caught on camera placing the items inside their handbags without paying. This incident occurred around 2:30 pm.
In another incident, around 3:50 pm, both females entered the Hon Xing Chinese Store on Market Street and stole a pack of plastic cups and two pairs of baby socks valued at EC $14.95.
Camera footage again showed both females placing the items inside their bags without paying for them.
