KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Five men believed to be involved in lottery scamming were remanded into custody when they appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court Wednesday.

Carlos Barnett, 20-year-old student of East Street, Kingston; Rajiv Christie, 20-year-old of Maiden Street, Kingston 16; Rashane Mitchell, 20-year-old of Sherlock Crescent, Kingston 20; Orane Davis, 21-year-old of Yallahs, St Thomas and Fabian Montague, 25-year-old of Darliston, Westmoreland have all been charged with breaches of the Law Reform (Fraudulent Transactions) (Special Provisions) Act.

Montague and Christie are also charged with the offence of possession of ganja.

Reports are that on Monday, June 24 about 7:00 pm, investigators from the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Task Force (MOCA) assisted by members of Area Four Police headquarters carried out an operation at an apartment at Laidley Close in Norbrook, St Andrew. 

Following a search of the premises the five, who were present, were found to be in possession of paraphernalia of lottery scamming and taken into custody. 

Montague and Christie both had a quantity of ganja in their possession and were charged for that offence.

They were all remanded into custody until July 29 when their case will next be heard.
