Investigations into unlawful possession case still ongoing
Christopher Thomas, STAR Writer


A St James man allegedly found in possession of Bank of America banking cards that were not his, got a June 25 mention date in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Thomas Young, 19, from Granville, is charged with unlawful possession of property. He had his $400,000 bail extended as the prosecution requested additional time to complete ongoing investigations with the United States authorities.

It was alleged that on September 23, 2013, police saw Young conducting a transaction at a banking machine on Gloucester Avenue, Montego Bay. When approached, he reportedly ran but was chased and held.

He was found with two Bank of America Visa cards, a Western Union card, and US$4,000 which he could not properly account for. He was charged.

Clerk of the court, Natalie Malcolm, told Resident Magistrate Carolyn Tie the investigations were still ongoing.

RM Tie subsequently set the case for mention in June, when the investigations are expected to be completed.
