Man on simple larceny charge fined

Don't bite the hand that feed you, was the advice given to a man who has been accused stealing from his boss, when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

Devon Dobson, 40, who has been charged with simple larceny, was fined $15000 or six months in prison.

Allegations are that the accused was searched by his employer on the day of the incident, and $8,500 worth of machete files were found in his possession.

The complainant told the court that it was not the first time that he has lost his stock, as in the past there was no account for $300,000 worth of similar stock.

"Your honour, you see because dis happen now, everything else is gonna fall on me," Dobson said.

Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey, who heard that the accused has been working with the complainant for 13 years, said the only reason she didn't send Dobson to prison was because it was his first time being charged.

"Don't bite the hands that feed you, it's only because its your first time here; but you should return the stuff," RM Pusey said.
