Man accused of stealing cop's phone

A man who was accused of stealing a cellular phone belonging to a police officer pleaded guilty with explanation in the Corporate Area Resident's Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Keith Richards, who also works at the same police station as the complainant, is charged with stealing an Alcatel cellular phone valued $8,000.

The court was told that on Monday, January 28, the police officer along with his colleagues were at a training session at Up Park Camp when the officer's phone went missing.

According to Richards, "after the event, I saw the phone and took it up, at first I denied it because there were some other guys there and they were saying I should take it, so I did."

A fingerprint order was requested and he was ordered to pay a fine of $25,000 or spend six months in prison.
