Man on theft charge awaits fate

A FORMER warehouse supervisor charged with one count of theft will know his fate next week.

Malakai Takala, 27, appeared in the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday and admitted the facts after opting to represent himself.

According to the summary of facts, in October last year, Takala stole three cans of Woodstock Bourbon and Cola and a bottle of liquor from the warehouse in which he was employed.

Takala said he agreed and understood the facts presented to the court.

In mitigation, he said he was 27 years old and employed. He said he stole because there was no water in the system that day and he was thirsty.

The prosecution informed the court the items were recovered from Takala as he was unable to consume them. He will be sentenced next Wednesday.
