Teen admits housebreaking, theft
A Haitian teen yesterday admitted breaking into a woman’s home and stealing almost $10,000 in valuables.
The boy, 15, of no fixed address, appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney charged with housebreaking and stealing.
The teen admitted that he broke into a woman’s home on East Street South on October 18 before stealing a computer, laptop, jewelry, luggage and cash with a combined value of $9.860.
A boy, 17, initially admitted receiving the stolen desktop computer, but McKinney entered a not guilty plea after he said he didn’t know it was stolen.
Both teens were remanded to the adolescent section of the prison until Tuesday when they will appear before the Juvenile Panel.
