2012-10-23 07:40:12 | (0 Comments)
Peopleís National Party Councillor for the Salt Spring Division in St. James, Sylvan Reid, is to return to court today.
Reid is before the Montego Bay Resident Magistrateís Court on a charge of illegal possession of property.
He is out on $250,000.
The charge stemmed from operations at several premises led by the Lottery Scam Task Force across sections of St. James in July.
The police said during the raids they seized flat screen televisions at Reidís home.
They also said similar seizures were made at premises where 29-year-old businessman Dwight Troupe, and his 29-year-old cousin, Ricardo Jarrett, lived.
The case against Troupe and Jarrett, who are both out on bail, failed to get underway in court on Friday and was put off to February 22, next year.
Troupe is the son of the deputy Mayor of Montego Bay Michael Troupe, who was also charged by the Lottery Scam Task Force.
Deputy Mayor Troupe was cleared of all charges, but another of his sons, Jevaughn, was sentenced to two years' imprisonment and fined two million dollars after pleading guilty to illegal possession of a firearm and five rounds of ammunition.
