Trinidad Express / A WAITER who stole more than 145 cases of alcoholic beverages from his employer was ordered to repay over $28,000.
Jairam Anganoo was charged with stealing the drinks from Rising Star Restaurant and Lounge in San Fernando.
He was jointly charged with Anil Chatoor, a chef at the establishment, for stealing bottles of Johnnie Walker Black Label, Vodka and cartons of cigarettes together valued $5,362. Anganoo told the police these were sold “by the Chinee grocery.”
Anganoo was responsible for ordering items and placing them in the stockroom. Between April 21 and May 11 he signed for receiving the beverages. Police prosecutor Cleyon Seedan said the owner of the business checked for the items but they were missing. Angamoo told the police that he colluded with others to get the items which he sold.
“I cannot remember how much cases it was but it was Carib, Guinness, Mackeson, Ginseng, Carib Light and Heineken,” he told officers.
From the police’s evidence, over 145 cases of alcoholic beverages were mentioned. The total missing amounted to $31,069.14. Both men were charged by corporal Shaun Mohammed.
Before senior magistrate Cherril-Anne Antoine, defence attorney Ainsley lucky asked that his clients be spared time in jail.
He said Anganoo, 34 of La Romaine committed the offences because he was experiencing financial hardships. Lucky said his client was however still willing to pay compensation.
He also said that Anganooo and Chatoor, 39 of Chaguanas were in custody since Saturday.
Both men had no previous matters before the court.
“Now you have given yourselves a criminal record and now you have to find a new job,” the magistrate told them.
Anganoo was fined $1,900 for each of the four charges. He was also ordered to pay $28, 415.14 in compensation. He was given two months to pay the money or he will serve four months hard labour for failing to pay the fine and six weeks simple imprisonment for failing to pay the compensation.
Chatoor was fined $1,900 and ordered to repay $2,681 – half of the money calculated from the theft for which he and Anganoo were jointly charged. He was also allowed time to pay and should he fail to pay he will serve time in prison.
