St Lucian men charged with having 121 ATM cards


Two St Lucian nationals who were persons of interest in a matter involving fraudulent activities at Automatic Teller Machines (ATMs) here have been charged with having in their possession 121 automatic teller machine (ATM) cards.

Earlier this month, three St Lucian nationals were arrested, but only one, Jammy Jameson Harry, was charged with theft.

However, on Tuesday, March 28, 2017, all three men were charged in relation to the offence.

Aaron Kadoo, 30, is charged that on March 12, 2017 at Kingstown, he had in his possession articles, namely, 121 ATM cards for the use of theft, while Harry is charged that on that same day he had four ATM cards. Both men pleaded not guilty.

Additionally, Mario Chitole, 25, joined Harry and Kadoo on a conspiracy charge between March 9 and 12. All three pleaded not guilty.

Harry is separately charged with stealing a total of EC$15,5000 between March 10 and 12, 2017, while Kadoo and Chitole also face charges for illegal entry to the state.

Bail was not open to them, as they are non-nationals.

On Tuesday, the investigating officer requested an appropriate adjournment to facilitate more charges that may be laid against the three men.

The trio, represented by lawyer Duane Daniel, will reappear before the Serious Offences Court on June 3, 2017. (AS)
