Teens face public mischief, larceny charge

Two teenagers, one charged with creating public mischief and the other with larceny by finding, are linked in a case resulting in one receiving 12 months' probation in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court last week.

The two are 18-year-old Amoy Brown and 19-year-old Kemol Burnette, respectively.

It is believed that in December last year, Brown left her school bag containing a Huawei cellular phone to perform at a heritage concert put on by her school. Upon retrieving the bag, Brown reportedly discovered that the phone was missing.

Subsequently, she reportedly filed a report at the police station, inclusive of details of her being robbed at gunpoint.

"I make a false report to the police; later I went to school and told them [what I did]," Brown stated.

The phone later turned up in the possession of Burnette, who claims to have found the phone.

"Miss, me never tief the phone, is a bus mi find the phone pon," Burnette remarked.

Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey addressed the teenage girl in the court.

"Is a very brave 18-year-old that can go into a police station and tell a lie like that," Pusey said.

RM Pusey gave Burnette a 12-month probation order.
