Fake butcher remanded for stealing goats

December 05, 2016

A man who was allegedly held with eight goat carcasses that were not stamped was remanded when the matter came up in the St Catherine Parish Court on Friday.

Horace Williams of Old Harbour, St Catherine, was ordered remanded when his matter was mentioned. However, his co-accused, David Squire was granted bail in the sum of $200,000.

In court, it was revealed that Williams also has a similar matter before the St Catherine Parish Court.

Allegations are that on November 14, the police were on patrol in Homestead, Spanish Town, when the team went to an unfinished house and saw a group, including Williams and Squire, cutting up goat meat.

The other men ran, but the police held Squire and Williams. They were checked for butcher's license and receipt for the sale of the meat. However, they had none.

Both men were arrested and subsequently charged with larceny.

They are scheduled to reappear in court on December 9 when the matter will again be mentioned.
