Handcuffed Prisoner

The vigilant Trelawny police has once again made the news on the back of a suspicious discovery. In one of their fruitful searches on the Wiltshire main road, they discovered a 17-year old passenger with a large sum of money, for which he could not give account.

KINGSTON, Jamaica — The police in Trelawny say a 17-year-old boy was apprehended on a coaster bus on the Wiltshire main road in the parish Friday, after he was found with more than J$500,000 in cash.

Reports are that about 6:45 pm, lawmen signalled the driver of the coaster bus to stop, he complied and the vehicle was searched. During the process, the teenager – who is from Fletchersland and Allman Town addresses in Kingston – was searched and J$530,000 found in his possession, for which he could not satisfactorily account.

He was subsequently taken into custody on reasonable suspicion of breaches of the Proceeds of Crime Act and the cash seized.
