August 10, 2020

A St Mary man who was arrested for breaches of the Road Traffic Act earlier this month is now also facing charges of shop-breaking and larceny, stemming from an incident in 2018.

He has been identified as Leon Palmer, 27, otherwise called 'Paps', of River Drive, Richmond, in the parish.

Reports are that about 8:30 p.m. on February 6, 2018, the complainant locked up her bar and shortly after returned to find that the building had been broken into. An assortment of alcoholic drinks valuing J$34,000 was stolen.

After Palmer was arrested for traffic violations, his fingerprints were ordered taken. It was later discovered that his fingerprints matched those that were taken from the scene of the robbery.

He was slapped with the additional charges after an interview. His court date is to be finalised.
