Two teenagers were on Sunday (October 17) charged in connection with a break-in at a shop in Portland.
Charged are 18-year-old Gabari Hunter of a Port Antonio address and a 16-year-old boy, whose name is being withheld.
Reports are that about 7:30 p.m., a worker went to the location and discovered that locks on the door had been removed. She made an alarm and the culprits—who were still inside the shop—tried to escape.
Hunter was caught and handed over to the police, while the 16-year-old boy was arrested the following day.
Both were officially charged on Monday, October 18 and will appear before the Buff Bay Parish Court on Wednesday, October 20.
Both are charged with Shop Breaking and Larceny.
