A magistrate court has ordered a 42-year-old man to hold up a sign outside a police station that reads “Thou shall not steal”.

The police said that Stephan Williams will have to hold up the sign outside the police station in the capital for three days after he was charged with attempted larceny.

He was also placed on a TT$2,000 (One TT dollar-US$0.16 cents) bond and instructed to keep the peace for one year.

Williams was arrested and later charged by police following a report made by a proprietor on May 2 that a man attempted to steal a crate of frozen chickens.

According to the proprietor, he secured his food establishment, Texas Ranch, along Ariapita Avenue on the outskirts of the capital, and retired to sleep.

He told police that he was awakened by strange sounds emanating from outside the establishment and on investigating he saw the accused holding a long pipe attempting to remove the case of chicken valued at TT $3,000.

The business owner raised an alarm and the accused was arrested as he walked along a street in the capital.
