A St Andrew Justice of the Peace is scheduled to appear in court this week on criminal charges.

The police's Corporate Communications Unit says Pauline Perez was arrested last Tuesday in connection with a case against a Corporate Area businessman accused of using forged documents to obtain a Jamaican passport.

Perez has been charged with making a false statement and is to appear in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday along with 51-year-old businessman Paul Crawford.

Crawford is charged with multiple counts of forgery and breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act. He was remanded when he appeared in court last Thursday.

He was arrested on February 13 after he went to the St Andrew offices of the Passport Immigration and Citizen Agency and allegedly used fraudulent documents to apply for a passport under an assumed identity.

It is alleged that police investigators found a quantity of marijuana during a subsequent search of his home.
