A Jamaican exotic dancer will be deported from Antigua today after she was charged with breaking, entering and larceny on Wednesday.

According to Caribarenaantigua, the Jamaican national, Nashieka Ricketts, and co-accused Mandela Spencer, broke into the L&Z store on March 12 and stole EC$10,000 worth of items.

It is alleged that Ricketts used a pair of scissors to damage the store's surveillance system, while the duo made off with 61 pairs of gold-filled chains, 19 pendants, 19 bracelets, female undergarments, caps and perfumes.

The loot was allegedly loaded into Spencer's vehicle and taken to a house in Mount Pleasant.

A report was made and an investigation was launched, resulting in a search being conducted at the house and the items subsequently recovered.

The duo were hauled before the St John's Magistrate's Court and were fined EC$2,500 or one year in prison; both parties paid.

An immigration officer made an application for Ricketts to be removed from the country. This was subsequently granted.
