Jamaican caught trying to flee country after allegedly stealing $600


Akiem Cole of Cassada Gardens has pleaded guilty to larceny after he was found Monday at the V. C Bird International airport trying to flee the country.

Cole allegedly stole $600 from a woman he spent the night with.

He was subsequently summoned to court before Magistrate Ngaio Emmanuel-Edwards where he pleaded guilty to the charge.

The Jamaican is said to have stayed at a guest house in Buckleys with a local woman after they went out for drinks.

It is reported that when the woman awoke the next morning, Cole was gone as well as her money.

Cole was remanded to prison to await sentencing next week.
