A 27-year-old man admitted in court yesterday to breaking into a restaurant and stealing 29 items valued at $10,400 – most of which were sex toys and alcohol.

Eustace Lovelle stole the items from Café Shattoo on Old Parham Road just over a year ago.

On January 20 2019, the owner of the café secured the premises and left for about two hours. 

When he returned, he spotted one of the doors to the building had been pried open and, upon further inspection, he noticed that a quantity of sex toys and alcoholic beverages that he had been storing for another business venture had been stolen.

He also realised that his DVR system and projector were missing.

The businessman subsequently made a report to the police but a few minutes’ prior, an officer who was driving in the vicinity of the Public Works Department observed the defendant walking suspiciously while carrying a big knapsack and a box.

The officer stopped the defendant and, upon searching his person, the adult toys and the projector, plus four bottles of Cavalier rum, were discovered.

Lovelle told the officer that a Dominican man who had since migrated to Dominica had given the items to him.

Nevertheless, he was taken into custody along with the items which the café owner later identified as his missing property.

He will be sentenced at the end of this month.
