Man ordered to hold up sign after attempted chicken theft


    For three days, a St James man will stand outside the Besson Street Police Station holding a sign stating “Thou Shall Not Steal”.

    Stephan Williams was given this order after appearing in court yesterday charged after the attempted theft of a $3,000 crate of frozen chicken from Texas Ranch on Ariapita Avenue on May 2nd.

    The suspect was arrested walking along Alberto Street, Woodbrook, following a report by the proprietor of the establishment.

    Along with having to stand outside the station, Williams has been placed on a $2,000 bond and instructed to keep the peace for one year.
