Rasbert Turner, STAR Writer

A St Catherine man who was held driving a motor vehicle that had the chassis number of another in Westmoreland was remanded when he appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Marcus Bond, 32-year-old mechanic of Portmore, St Catherine, had his request for bail denied despite a lengthy plea from his attorney. When the matter came up before Resident Magistrate Anmarie Nembhard, she told Bond's lawyer that bail could not be considered at this time as the Crown's file was incomplete and what is before the court was not enough to inform her decision.

Bond was then told that he would have to stay with the police until July 29, by which time outstanding document from the Inland Revenue Department and the Westmoreland police would be on file.

Allegations are that on June 27, a police party doing traffic enforcement duty stopped a Honda motor car driven by the accused.

documents were examined

When his documents were being examined, it was observed that the chassis number on the document did not correspond with the Honda.

A more detailed check revealed that the chassis number as well as the licence plate belong to a Daihatsu motor car in Westmoreland.

He was subsequently arrested and charged by Corporal Andre Pinnock for forgery, unlawful possession of property and fraudulent use of licence plate.
