St Lucian to face more charges


More charges are to be laid against St Lucian national Jammy Jameson Harry, who currently faces nine counts of theft.

Yesterday at the Serious Offences Court, Harry pleaded not guilty to the charges, in the presence of his lawyer Duane Daniel.

Bail is still not open to him and the court heard that more charges would be laid on him today. Harry is believed to be one of three St Lucians apprehended by police in relation to recent reports of fraudulent activities at Automatic Teller Machines (ATMs) around St Vincent and the Grenadines.

He first appeared the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court with two other St Lucians – Aaron Kadoo and Mario Chitole. However, those two men have only been charged with immigration offences so far.

Harry is accused of stealing a total of EC$15,500 between March 10 and 12, 2017.

The St Lucian national is charged that between March 10 and 11 he stole EC$5,500 in cash from Michelle Williams of Owia on four occasions and on those same dates he allegedly stole EC$4,000 in cash from Curvis Lewis of Sion Hill on two occasions in Kingstown.

Harry is also accused of stealing EC$6,000 in cash from Willis Pope of Villa on three occasions between March 10 and 13.

All charges are laid under Section 209(1) of the Criminal Code.(AS)
