TERRENCE Thomas of kitty was, on Friday October 11, 2019, ordered to complete six months of community service, by Senior Magistrate Leron Daly.

The 24-year-old porter appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and accepted the charge when it was read to him.

Particulars of the charge stated that, on October 8, 2019, on Vlissingen Road, in the vicinity of Survival Supermarket, he unlawfully and maliciously damaged six windows, valued at $181,000, of a motor vehicle owned by Quincy McEwan.

McEwan pleaded with the Magistrate not to send Thomas to jail but allow him to do community service and work and pay for the damages.

Police prosecutor Christopher Morris told the court that Thomas and McEwan were known to each other, since they were engaged in a relationship for over two years.

Morris also told the court that, on the day in question, McEwan and Thomas were on Vlissingen Road, in the vicinity of Survival Supermarket, where they were involved in a heated argument and, as a result, Thomas took away McEwan’s bag containing $70,000. Thomas damaged the windows of McEwan’s vehicle using a brick. The matter was reported and Thomas was arrested and charged.

Magistrate Daly ordered Thomas to complete six months of community service at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and ordered him to pay McEwan compensation for the damages. The Magistrate gave Thomas up to December 27, 2019, to complete payment.
