Corn beef thief deported to Guyana

Reproduced from Barbados Today

A 51-year-old Guyanese man was today ordered to leave the country after pleading guilty to theft in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court.

Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sergeant issued the deportation order to Johnny Harington Worrell, who has been living in Barbados illegally for the past 11 years.

Worrell, who resided in Deacons Road, St Michael, was charged with stealing one can of corn beef valued at $5, two cans of tuna worth $6.20 and three cans of condensed milk valued $11.55 from A1 Supermarket Limited.

He was arrested yesterday after security personnel responded to a report that a man was seen concealing items “on his person”.

The tuna was found in spandex-like underpants while the other items were found in the small of his back under a vest.

According to a report the accused arrived in Barbados in December 2004 and applied for an extension to stay in the country until June the following year.

However, he failed to regularize his status when it expired on August 31, 2005.

    This is the highest order bestowed on our people,what a shame ,before we come together and pull out of this status,we need to put aside ethnic and political difference.this is so shameful.To know we have more resources,more land,more talent etc.and being called this,the stench of plural politics and it’s tailspin in the last fifty years has made the Guyanese people a victim of these unfortunate circumstances.
