Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

A man who was charged with breaches of the Law Reform Fraudulent Transaction Special Provision Act of 2013 (Possession of Identity Information) pleaded guilty in the St Ann Circuit Court and is to be sentenced today.

He is Marlon Calquahoun, a 21-year-old labourer of Orange Hill, Westmoreland.


When Calquahoun appeared before Justice Marjorie Cole-Smith, he admitted to the court that he knowingly possessed the documents with intent to commit fraud.

The accused who was represented by attorney-at-law, Linton Gordon, was remanded for sentencing.

It was revealed that on January 27 this year, police, acting on information, went to a guest house in Cardiff Hall, Runaway Bay, St Ann.

During a search of the premises, the police found a book containing the number and addresses of a number of overseas residents. Calquahoun also had money transaction numbers, receipts, tax registration numbers, cellular phones and other items.

Investigations by Detective Sergeant Kirk Nicholson resulted in him being charged.
