Tank thief gets
six months jail
A man rolling a 400 gallon water tank in the
heart of the city at nightin the dead of the night
aroused the suspicion of a police officer.
It turned out that Marvin Williams has stolen the
tank from the burnt out shell of a supermarket.
Williams was arrested bypolice constable Shawn-
dell Euin and taken to court to explain how the tank
ended up in his possession.
When Williams, 45, appeared in the San Fernando
Fifth Magistrates Court, he admitted to stealing the
tank from the premises of a gutted Chinese restau-
rant at Cipero Street, San Fernando and was sent to
jail for six months.
Euin testified that around 10.30 pm on Thursday
he saw Williams rolling a water tank along the road
near Republic Bank at Library Corner.
Suspicious that he stole the tank,Euin confronted
Williams, but he remained silent. He charged him
with unlawful possession.
Williams, who came out of prison four months
ago after serving a term for stealing, agreed with
the officer's version of what transpired. He said he
wanted the tankto storewater to flush his toilet. Not-
ing that he had 12 convictions for larceny in the last
decade, Magistrate Indira Misir-Gosine sentenced
him to six months in jail.
