Employee Admits Theft from Augusto Quan and Company

Antonio Novelo

A sales clerk employed at Augusto Quan and Company appeared in court this morning after being caught red-handed shoplifting from his place of work on Monday.  Thirty-eight-year-old Antonio Novelo was arraigned before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford on a single charge of theft earlier today.  The former security guard turned sales clerk was unrepresented and wasted no time pleading guilty to stealing a black and yellow screwdriver and a two-way cable television splitter.  The total value of both items amounted to four dollars, but Novelo was fined one hundred and twenty-five times the value of those articles which is the equivalent of five hundred dollars.  He was ordered to pay the sum by January fifteenth, 2018 or face five months imprisonment.  Novelo, we understand, was terminated from his job forthwith.

    1. Stealing is wrong
    2. Augusto Quan, the total value of the items is $4 mein! Even if you want to make an example. You concluded, base on the court decision, that this matter could not have been handle no other way? For $4. Oh by the way, he was security guard turn sales clerk.
    Shame on you Augusto Quan!! The punishment does not suite the crime $4!!! Curel and unjust treatment. Oh he got fired too and I am sure you got back your items.$4????
