JAMAICA STAR – A retired policeman has been left furious after culprits broke into his yard and emptied his jimbilin (star fruit) tree leaving only a single fruit with a note saying, “Unuh too mean”, and a middle finger drawn beside it.
“I reacted how anyone would. It’s your land, and you’re vexed, and you’re mad,” Wynter Clarke, who lives in Bridgeport, St Catherine, told THE STAR.
“I woke up Sunday morning at about 6:15 for church, and when I checked the car porch, I observed a cartridge paper with the presentation written on it. They cleaned the tree completely. It had on about four dozen fruits on it.”
Clarke, who has numerous fruit trees in his yard, including plums, mangoes and naseberries, said he is aware that people might have stolen from him before, but never on this magnitude or with such disrespect.
“When someone steals and leaves, it’s different from when somebody steals and leaves a note. It’s like a guy who kills someone and then leaves a message. He’s sending a signal that he wants to show his authority and power, to show me that I must plant and he must reap,” Clarke said.
