Forty-three-year-old Sean Peters of 183 Callender Street, Albouystown Georgetown appeared on Wednesday before Georgetown Magistrate Fabayo Azore and admitted that, between July 13 and 14 last, he stole from Nizam Shaw two batteries valued at $64,000.
Peters told the court that he sold the batteries, but to date has collected only $5000.
He explained to the court that he has a “lil girlfriend,” and also needed cash to smoke. He also related that he has a daughter whom he cannot afford to support by just washing vehicles, which is his job.
Peters told Magistrate Azore that he does not enjoy stealing, but it is something that he always ends up doing, and the bad habit has caused him to spend three years in prison previously.
When a sentence of three months’ jail was pronounced on him, a smiling Peters turned to persons present in court and said, “Is suh you does wrap them up”.
