car-wash worker freed of larceny charges

Rasbert Turner, Portmore Star Writer

A Portmore car-wash worker was freed of a charge of simple larceny, due to discrepancies in the Crown's case, when he appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

He is Kemar Bryan of Greater Portmore in the municipality.

Resident Magistrate Marcia Dunbar-Green told Bryan he was free to go as the action of the police is a cause for concern. His freedom came after a corporal testified that he had not written on the file that had a signature purported to be his.

The court heard that the complainant went to a car wash to clean his car. He later found out that a gold ring valued at $30,000 was missing. A report was made to the Portmore Police Station.

An investigation was launched, which resulted in Bryan being arrested and charged with simple larceny.
