Bolans man steals deodorant from Epicurean Supermarket 


A 30-year-old Bolans man was reprimanded and discharged after admitting to stealing one Degree deodorant from Epicurean Supermarket in Jolly Harbour on Sunday.


The father of three young girls appeared before Magistrate Ngaio Emanuel-Edwards yesterday and told the court that he had lost his job in April due to Covid-19 and went to buy chicken for dinner that day with his family and pocketed the deodorant when he realized he didn’t have enough money to cover both items.


The Magistrate ordered him to pay for the deodorant but reprimanded and discharged him.


Just last week, a Guyanese woman was set free after pleading guilty to stealing almost $300 in groceries from the Supermarket’s Frairs Hill Road Branch.


She too shared that she was unemployed and had three children.


Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh was lenient with her.

  1. Has there been a change in the magistrates sentencing guidelines? Seems they have developed some common sense!

    • Desperate times…People out there are in need. Asking someone for help is better than stealing. Swollow your pride and ask. If the first answer is no, move on and keep on asking. @Shanita Joseph great that you can step in to help. Contact the police for their info.

  2. ANR it would be nice if stories like this one remains in the halls of the court room.

    The man has suffered enough and to further humiliate him and his family by publishing
    the story in my book is a little cruel.

    A little bit of censorship is good.

  3. People lost their jobs and that’s their excuse to teef?

    I wonder if they voted for the teefin party in power. Economic Poor House at your service.

    Creative enrichment is their scheme.

    Each endeavouring, all a teefing is their motto.

  4. 1. Why is it necessary to include the nationality when certain crimes are committed? We are no better than our Caribbean brothers and sisters.

    2. I hope he returned that antiperspirant deodorant. It contains aluminum zirconium which is well known to cause genetic mutation resulting in cancer.

    • Why is it necessary to include the village or area where they live – you dont think the Bolans community wish their name wasn’t dragged through the mud by the actions of one person?

  5. Despise not a theif if he steal to provide for his household but if he is caught he shall repay.. I am not saying what he has done is right but sometimes we are quick to judge in every situation like we are perfect. Some of us are well off than others and refuse to offer a helping hand to the poor and needy when they cry out for help, but quick to come to a conclusion because of the bad choices they make. We have leaders at times who will rob us from all angles and everybody are silent. We have become a society that feed the greedy instead of the needy.
