Five months for break-in at ex-GG’s home

NASSAU -A man who broke into the home of former Governor Governor Sir Arthur Foulkes has been jailed for just five months.

Hensley Pennerman, 55, entered Sir Arthur’s West Bay Street home through a kitchen window and stole an Apple MacBook and $121 on the evening of February 5.

The stolen items belonged to Sir Arthur’s wife, Lady Joan Foulkes. She discovered the break-in and theft around 6:30am on February 6, 2020.

Prints lifted from the scene linked Pennerman to the crime.

Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt imposed the sentence yesterday. She also directed prison officials to ensure that Pennerman gets treatment for his crack cocaine addiction while in custody.

According to Pennerman, he wanted to be a better person but he couldn’t kick his 30-year drug habit on his own.

Pennerman, otherwise known as Charles Forbes, pleaded guilty to housebreaking and stealing at his arraignment before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt.

Pennerman still faces other charges for which he’s been denied bail. He’s accused of six burglaries, a rape and attempted rape.

Those crimes allegedly took place between 2015 and 2020.

Pennerman will have those cases fast-tracked to the Supreme Court in November.
