KINGSTON, Jamaica - There was stunned silence in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court when a case of break-in was mentioned Tuesday.

The case that set mouths gaping was that of Kingston resident Leonard Wayson, who the court was told broke into the offices of the Jamaica Constabulary Force's elite Flying Squad and stole a number of items recently.

It was alleged in court that Wayson broke into the downtown offices of the Flying Squad and stole a 42-inch LCD TV, a microwave and component set.

The court was told that the case file is yet to be completed. Wayson was remanded into police custody until Friday for the investigating officer to furnish an outstanding statement.

Bail could be considered for Wayson on Friday. He was ordered fingerprinted.
