Tribune Staff Reporter

A MAN was fined $500 yesterday after admitting to stealing a schoolgirl’s bag and belt on Marathon Road earlier this week.

Magistrate Raquel Whyms charged Peter Russell, 26, with stealing and receiving.

Russell stole a black and brown reversible belt and one red Kipling bag valued at $258.15. The items belonged to Triceta Mitchell.

After pleading guilty to the charge, Russell was fined $500. Russell will risk three months in prison if he fails to pay. He was expected to pay half his fine before his release and $150 monthly until his debt is paid off.

He must return to court for a report on October 31.
