KINGSTON, Jamaica - Leonard Waysome, the janitor accused of stealing a number of electronic items from the downtown offices of the police Flying Squad where he worked, was offered $250,000 bail Tuesday in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.
The accused man was warned by Magistrate Georgianna Fraser to stay away from the Flying Squad office while the case is pending.
The Kingston 20 resident is accused of stealing a 42-inch flat screen television set, component set, foot spa, microwave, among other things.
The items were being stored at the police station as exhibits in another criminal case.
Waysome was charged on September 7 after taking a female police officer to a section of the East Queen Street Flying Squad compound and told her that he found the items there.
It was not said in court if there was a report that the items were missing when Waysome alerted the police but he was eventually charged with their theft.
He is to return to court on October 23.
