A 51-year-old Guyanese man was today ordered to leave Barbados after pleading guilty to theft in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court in that country.
According to media reports coming out of Barbados, Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sergeant issued the deportation order to Johnny Harington Worrell, who has been living in Barbados illegally for the past 11 years.
Worrell, who resided in Deacons Road, St Michael, was charged with stealing one can of corn beef valued at $5, two cans of tuna worth $6.20 and three cans of condensed milk valued $11.55 from A1 Supermarket Limited.
‘Barbados Today’ has reported that the man was arrested yesterday after security personnel responded to a report that a man was seen concealing items “on his person”.
The tuna was found in spandex-like underpants.
