Princess Hotel Bowling burglar gets fined

Gilroy Garnett

The Bowling area of the Princess Hotel and Casino was burglarized on the weekend of February fifth and sixth. And it turns out that the culprit is a former employee who seems to have forgotten that the building is armed with surveillance cameras. Twenty-seven year old Gilroy Garnett managed to get away with a cash register valued at four hundred and thirty-one dollars, which contained four hundred dollars cash. Late Monday evening, Garnett was charged with Burglary and after being caught on camera, he couldn’t say “it wasn’t me”. So he pleaded guilty and was fined two thousand dollars, which he has to pay by March thirty-first or spend two years in jail. The burglary was reported by fifty-four year old Tuna Aktbulut, Manager of the Princess Hotel and Casino while statements were also given by Thomas Valerio, the Chief Security Guard, Javier Aleman, the Night Supervisor and Arbunie Clare, a cashier at the Princess. Based on their information, police patrols were alerted to be on the lookout for Garnett, who was caught on Monday.

    Mein, you all made me chuckle. Usually if you have distinguishing features, like tattoos, scars and deformities its best you stay away from criminal activities as it’s likely you would be caught. Obviously no one told this poor little fellow. Scary!
