Probe ordered in larceny case
Rasbert Turner, STAR Writer

An investigation has been ordered in a simple larceny case after one of the witnesses told the court that he did not write or sign a statement that has his name.

The revelation came during the testimony of a police corporal.

When asked if he wrote the statement, he told the court no, and added that the signature was not his either.

He also told the court that he had not asked anyone to write it on his behalf.

The matter was then put off until today.

Evidence was been given that on July 24, the complainant went to a car wash in Portmore. The accused Kemar Bryan allegedly stole his gold ring valued at $30,000.

A report was made to the Portmore Police Station and an investigation launched.

The accused was subsequently charged with simple larceny. He pleaded not guilty to the offence.
