Man who gifted girlfriend stolen sex toy fined



A man who gave his girlfriend a stolen sex toy two years ago has been fined $1,000.

On Thursday, Delon Mattheson admitted to receiving a vibrator worth $300.

Initially, Mattheson and Javante Lloyd were accused of stealing several sensual adult lifestyle products from Harmony Remedies on Popeshead Street on November 7 2020.

But Lloyd had admitted that it was him who broke into the store and made off with jewellery, sex toys, male enhancement pills, condoms, a quantity of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, phone accessories, and $9,000 in cash.

The items were collectively valued at more than $32,800.

Mattheson was given one of the sex toys by Lloyd which he in turn gifted to his partner at the time.

The woman and Mattheson were both charged with receiving but, due to insufficient evidence, the Crown withdrew its case against the 23-year-old girl.

Mattheson claimed to have known nothing about the break-in but told the police that he did ask Lloyd for one of the vibrators.

Yesterday, Justice Ann-Marie Smith fined the defendant $1,000 which he has to pay in full by December 31 or spend six months in prison.

Lloyd is presently serving a six-month prison sentence for the break-in and theft.

  1. So the man that broke in and stole over $32 000 worth of goods only got 6months while the person that got a $300 item got charged $1000 or 6 months in jail. WOW 😳
    Hope you learn your time you do the stealing🤣🤣🤣🤣

    That was a little humor…
    But on a serious note this judgement seems a bit unfair but then again that should be a lesson learned. Do not accept stolen goods.
    When buying or receiving items from people that you know don’t own a business be sure to ask for their proof of purchase. Dem people just a walk a tief ppl sudden fu sell over. Go look work fu do. Too many lazy bums on the street just watching and plotting their next move

  2. @cry for our children, often times, handling stolen property get you more time or less lenient charge than who does the crime it self….
