Akeem Beazer was sentenced to two months in prison, after a video of him stealing from a fast food restaurant went viral.
At around 8 pm on Saturday 28th September 2019, the twenty-nine-year-old made off with $490 from Marley’s Restaurant on Old Parham Road after he pretended to be a customer.
Video footage of the incident showed the man wearing a white and black cap and a red shirt, as he reached over the counter into the cash register and removed the money.
Several days later, the Clare Hall resident was caught by police in Barbuda and was returned to Antigua where he was charged with larceny.
Beazer pleaded guilty to the offence when brought before Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh in the St John’s Magistrates’ Court.
