A salesgirl of Anna Regina, Essequibo Coast, will be spending the next six months doing community service, having admitted to breaking and entering to steal Fern Leaf milk powder and toilet paper.
Unita Ramnauth, 20, was sentenced to community service when she made her second court appearance before Magistrate Sunil Scarce on Wednesday at the Anna Regina Magistrate’s court.
On February 10, 2016, Ramnauth was refused bail by Magistrate Scarce after she pleaded not guilty to the charge. However when she returned to court Wednesday she informed that she wished to charge her plea to guilty.
She admitted that between January 20 and February 5, 2016, at Anna Regina, Essequibo Coast, she broke and entered the dwelling place of Bhagwandat Jones and stole items worth $180,000.
Ramnauth acknowledged that she indeed went into the bond with a key and took items which included milk power, toilet paper, breeze soap powder, 96 tooth brushes, toothpaste, cooking oil and bleach.
After expressing her apology for the offence, Magistrate Scarce ordered Ramnauth to start her community service on February 20, 2016 at the Anna Regina Police station.
