Man jailed for rum cake thefts

NASSAU-A thief literally took the cake.
Demetrius Delancy was jailed for two years after he admitted stealing 12 cakes during a December 20 break-in at the Rum Cake Factory on East Bay Street.
Delancy, 33, of Spence Street, Mason’s Addition, was caught on camera taking the cakes that sell for $5.62 each.
Delancy pleaded guilty to shopbreaking, stealing and damaging the storefront window to gain entry.
Delancy, who has multiple convictions for similar crimes, claimed he planned to eat the sweet treats instead of selling them.
He said it was difficult getting work due to his criminal record.
Deputy Chief Magistrate Andrew Forbes advised Delancy to learn a trade while in prison so that he could become a productive member of society on release.
