Akiem Cole of Cassada Gardens pleaded guilty to larceny on Monday when he appeared in the All Saints Magistrate Court to answer charges that he stole $600 from a woman after spending the night with her.

The Jamaican is said to have stayed at a guest house in Buckleys with a local woman after they went out for drinks.

It is reported that when the woman awoke the next morning, Cole was gone – and so was her money.

Cole was later found at the V. C Bird International airport where he was nabbed trying to flee the country.

He was subsequently summoned to court before Magistrate Ngaio Emmanuel-Edwards where he pleaded guilty to the charge.

He was remanded to prison to await sentencing next week.
