A woman who stole five pairs of sandals from a shoemakers's locker at his shop in Half-Way-Tree, St Andrew, is to be sentenced in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on January 23 next year.

Alicia Stewart, a 34-year-old resident of Portmore Gardens, St Catherine, pleaded guilty to simple larceny when she appeared in court yesterday before Parish Judge Vaughn Smith.

The court heard that on November 9 about 4:30 am Stewart went into the complainant's locker and took five pairs of sandals belonging to the complainant's clients, who had left them with him to have them repaired.

The matter was reported and Stewart, who was fingered, was arrested and charged.

Yesterday, following her guilty plea, her bail was extended for her to return for sentencing. A social enquiry report was requested.
