Man suspected of several Cassada Gardens break-ins sentenced to prison after surveillance camera captures his crime

A man who has been terrorizing the residents of a Cassada Gardens
neighbourhood has been jailed for larceny.’

Timothy Anthony appeared in the St. John’s Magistrates Court on
Tuesday, June 27, before Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh and pleaded
guilty to break-in and larceny.

Anthony, who is very well known to the court, having several prior
convictions for similar offences, was sentenced to six months at His
Majesty’s Prison.

The Police arrested and charged the 30-year-old on Monday, June
26, for breaking into a Cassada Gardens house and stealing jewelry
and an electronic device.

Reports say that, on June 22, Anthony broke into the home of
Francis Bernard Nicholls and stole a gold wedding ring valued at
$2,700 and a black Apple IPad valued at $3,252.

Apparently, the caper was caught on camera since the house he
broke into is armed with a surveillance system.

It is alleged that Anthony had also broken into a number of houses
on the same street, one of which is home to an elderly woman who
lost her television set.
