Thief caught by photo of stolen goods

NASSAU-Police caught a brazen thief who took a photo wearing a stolen watch and earrings.

Lashan Rolle, 26, posted the photo online days after she swiped the items while visiting a friend.

Waltia Burrows couldn’t find her Apple watch, Pandora necklace and charm, Michael Kors watch and a pair of replica David Yurman earrings after she invited friends to her home on September 12.

But Ms Burrows learned the thief’s identity when Rolle posted a photo wearing the Apple watch and earrings—and gave the police name of the suspect.

Police arrested Rolle and recovered the stolen watch and earrings.

Rolle pleaded guilty to stealing when she appeared before Deputy Chief Magistrate Andrew Forbes.

He placed Rolle on probation for 12 months and ordered her to perform 100 hours of community service. Additionally, Rolle has to pay Burrows $595 in compensation for the stolen items that weren’t recovered.

Rolle will spend six months in prison for failing to comply with any of these conditions.
