Two of the eight Jamaicans who were today extradited to stand trial in the United States grinned as US Federal agents led them to the door of a chartered aeroplane.

However, the other persons, including police constable Jason Jahalal, showed no emotion as they were led away to be tried in a foreign land.

The five male and three female are alleged to have been involved in lottery scamming. They have been charged by the United States on a 66-count indictment.

They are: police constable Jason Jahalal, Alrick McLeod, O'Neil Brown, Dario Palmer, Kazrae Gray, Kimberly Hudson, Xanu-Ann Morgan and Dahlia Hunter.

The eight were flown from the Norman Manley International Airport after a lengthy processing by local and US law enforcement authorities ‎at the police post at the Kingston-based facility.

 Luis Moreno, US Ambassador to Jamaica, revealed that a special task force established by US authorities to crack down on lottery scamming has "thousands of cases under investigation".

"Expect hundreds of extraditions," he said.
