Thief remanded for stealing children’s chips

In another case today, this time in Magistrate’s Court, a man facing a charge that he stole a bag of corn chips from a primary school was remanded to prison to await trial. Thirty-seven year old John Hernandez was charged with burglary after he stuck his hand into the Grace Primary School window on Wednesday night and stole a bag of “Maya” corn chips valued at four dollars and ninety-nine cents. Chief Magistrate Herbert Lord told Hernandez that he takes the matter seriously because children may well go hungry because he ate their stuff. Hernandez returns to court on June twenty-seventh.
