Kangemi man admits stealing honey at supermarket

A shoplifter who stole honey, energy drink, and a packet of masks at a city supermarket is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to theft charges.

James Isaboke admitted stealing green forest honey squeeze, a packet of surgical masks, a monster energy drink, a nail cutter, and a clipper cutter all valued at Sh1039 at Naivas food market at Kangemi in Nairobi on February 19.

Isaboke was to be charged with an alternative charge of handling stolen goods after he was found with the items which he dishonestly retained in the course of stealing but the same was dropped after he admitted theft charges.

Isaboke was stopped by private security guards at leaving the store with the items hidden in his clothes. They discovered that he had not paid for them and detained him.

The guards then informed the management and escorted him to Kangemi police station together with the items where he was arrested.

Isaboke pleaded guilty to the theft charges before senior principal magistrate Derrick Kutto of Kibera law courts.

He will be sentenced after the items he stole are presented to the court as exhibits.
