Toothpaste and soap land woman in prison


An 18-month suspended sentence imposed only last year by a magistrates’ court came back to haunt a 45-year-old woman today.

The three-month sentence attached to that order was triggered today after Maria Magaly Medford, of Hinkson Gap, Black Rock, St Michael was convicted, reprimanded and discharged on the offence that she stole a box of toothpaste and a packet of Dettol soap belonging to No. 1 Beauty Supply on March 11.

The accused was seen by a security guard removing the items from the shelve and concealing them in her handbag after she entered the store around 12:30 p.m.

When she appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick, Medford, who had previously appeared in another court on a similar offence, apologised for the crime and asked for help.

The magistrate ordered that she receive counseling at HMP as she served the three-month sentence.

A restitution ordered was also granted for the items to be returned to the establishment.
