Hun­gry loi­terer gets 9 months

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - The Courts - By HEATHER-LYNN EVANSON

A CO­CAINE ROCK had opened his ap­petite and to feed the crav­ing Ra­mon Akeem Quar­less went in search of some food.

He found some, but it was not his for the tak­ing.

Yes­ter­day, Quar­less paid for his ac­tions with nine months of his life when he ap­peared in the District “A” Mag­is­trates’ Court.

The 25-year-old unemployed man, of Har­mony Hall, Hinds­bury Road, St Michael, ad­mit­ted he loi­tered on the premises of the West In­dia Bis­cuit Com­pany (WIBISCO) on Monday and was un­able to give a sat­is­fac­tory ac­count of him­self.

The many-time con­victed of­fender was sen­tenced to nine months in prison by Mag­is­trate Kristie Cuffy-sargeant.

The court heard from pros­e­cu­tor Sergeant Cameron Gib­bons that an em­ployee of WIBISCO had in­formed the general man­ager that a man had en­tered the com­pactor lo­cated at the back of the premises near the fence that sep­a­rated WIBISCO from Green­fields. Ex­pired snacks and bis­cuits were placed in that com­pactor.

The general man­ager went to the com­pactor, opened the door and saw a man, who later turned out to be Quar­less, inside.

Po­lice were sum­moned and he was ar­rested and taken to Cen­tral Po­lice Sta­tion.
