St Elizabeth woman charged with embezzling nearly $1m

ST ELIZABETH, Jamaica – A 28-year-old woman from St Elizabeth has been charged with embezzlement of nearly one million Jamaican dollars.

In a release on Monday, detectives assigned to the St Elizabeth Police Division said in June 2022, Fylecia Dunkley was employed by a lottery and gaming company and was tasked with depositing the day’s sales into a bank account. Her employer later discovered, however, that over J$800,000 was missing.

A report was subsequently made to the police, and Dunkley arrested and charged.

She is scheduled to appear before the St Elizabeth Parish Court on Monday, July 25, 2022.
