Young man shows remorse for stealing bust of priest because he was broke

A young man who was caught stealing a bronze bust from Msida said he was sorry for what he did at a time when he was broke.

Kenneth Magro, 24, pleaded guilty to stealing and damaging the bust of Dun Amadeo Ebejer, which was located in the garden facing the Msida police station.

The attempted theft took place at 1.20am on 13 April, when Magro was caught red-handed by the Police while they were doing their rounds when they saw him with another person putting the bust into a bag. The two people fled from the scene, however the Police managed to catch Magro.

The Court, presided over by Magistrate Charmaine Galea,  took into consideration that Magro had co-operated with the Police and immediately pleaded guilty, had a clean conduct certificate, as well as the fact that the bust had been returned. The Court also considered that Magro had carried out the crime because he was having financial problems, but that he now understood that this was not the way to solve the situation, and that he had showed remorse.

Magro was therefore released on the condition that he does not carry out another crime in the next year.
