Maicol Peralta from the Dominican Republic received a six-month suspended prison sentence for two instances of aggravated theft committed between November 7 and November 24.
The third defendant, Teddy Webster from St. Martin, already well known to the justice system for breaking the terms of a previous suspended sentence, and said to be the organizer, received 12 months in prison plus four months “révocation” and was transferred straight away to serve his sentence in Baie Mahault prison, Guadeloupe.
He was charged with two instances of aggravated thefts as a repeat offender, committed between November 7 and November 24.
He was also charged with receipt of stolen goods as a repeat offender in the period August 7 to November 24. In addition, he was charged for driving a vehicle without a driver’s license and without insurance on November 24.
