Four persons held with a large quantity of counterfeit US dollar notes in St Thomas, have been granted bail totalling more than half a million dollars. They appeared in the Morant Bay Resident Magistrate's Court recently and are booked to return to court on July 28.

Shaya-Gay Needham, 23, from May Pen, Clarendon was offered $200,000 bail; Shorna-Kay Smith, 24, from Kingston was offered $150,000 bail; 33-year-old Trevor Russel of Montego Bay, St James was offered bail in the sum of $80,000 while Simone Gammon, 47, from St Ann was offered bail in the sum of $150,000.

Their bail conditions included stop orders at ports of entry, surrendering their travel documents and reporting to police stations in their area three days each week.

They were held on June 9 in Yallahs and Morant Bay after two rented cars in which they were travelling were intercepted by the police.

The police say all the US$50 and US$20 notes had the same serial number. The police did not disclose the quantity of money seized.
