ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Jovanie Richardson, 20, of Horsepath pleaded guilty to damaging one glass window but denied a charge of burglary when he appeared before Senior Magistrate Tamia Richards on October 11, 2013.

The defendant, who was unrepresented at the time of his arraignment, was charged with damaging the glass window of the Jewellery Box store located on Main Street and allegedly making off with 18 pairs of silver earrings late last year.

The court heard that the damaged glass was valued $250 while the silver earrings were valued $350.

According to the complaint read in court, Richardson allegedly committed the offences between October 29 and November 1, 2012.

Prosecutor Annjel Flax-Solomon told the court the Crown would proceed with a trial against the defendant following his not guilty plea on the burglary charge.

Richardson will return to court on November 11, 2013 when his trial is expected to get underway.

        There are no jobs? There are over 60 jobs in the Beacon every single day. Hush your dumb ass with that foolishness. There are house keepers, waiters, dishwashers, gardeners, labourers, porters, cashiers, warehouse workers, messengers, receptionist, secrertaries and many other entry level posts. They're just damn lazy but don't worry, is either jail or cemetery let them keep up the f**ry!

        Break into your house. That's the next course of action. Subsidize them, since they are "No Jobs" and you think this crap is a viable option.

        There are jobs out there, even if they pay little money. These guys want instant big money and do not want to work for less. How come we have so many people from other places working here if that were the case. BVIlanders do not want to work for minimum wages but there are jobs out there.
