GAY LOVERS HELD FOR LOTTERY SCAMMING
The St Andrew North police raided a popular apartment complex along Constant Spring Road and arrested four homosexual men under the Lottery Scam Act, after lead sheets were allegedly unearthed from a bin.
Information reaching THE STAR is that the operation, which was conducted on December 25, was intelligence driven.
According to police reports, a bin inside their apartment was searched and the lead sheet was pulled from a pile of garbage. THE STAR also understands that the men chastised the police, claiming their Christmas cleaning was being disturbed.
THE STAR gathered that while the men were being interrogated they confessed to a certain lifestyle.
A source close to the investigation told our news team, "Two of them are brothers along with their significant other."
The men are to face the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court soon.
The source also told THE STAR that at least two of the individuals committed the act while allegedly being on bail for a similar lottery scamming offence.
They were charged by the Constant Spring police and remain in custody.
