Saturday, May 27, 2017

KINGSTON, Jamaica — Former Cash Plus boss, Carlos Hill, walked out of the Home Circuit Court a free man on Wednesday after the case collapsed due to the unwillingness of witnesses to testify against him.

And, on the crime scene, police on Wednesday seized cocaine-laden dolls at a warehouse at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston.

Meanwhile, in sport, Yohan Blake, whose path to succeeding Usain Bolt as the world's fastest man was interrupted by injuries over the last few seasons, said his goal this year is to win the treble at the World Championships in London.
