The Clarendon Police say they are remaining vigilant against any likely increase in lottery scamming activities in the parish. 

Head of operations, Superintendent Carol McKenzie, sought to give the assurance following a series of anti lottery scamming operations last week.

He says the Clarendon Police have put in place systems to prevent a spike in lottery scamming activities.

Last week, three persons from Rose Hall were arrested after being found in possession of personal identity material and other paraphernalia relating to the illicit lottery scamming trade.

The three are expected to be charged soon.

Also last week, 29-year-old Tanisha Jackson of Cow Pen, Frankfield was sentenced to three years imprisonment after she pleaded guilty to conspiracy to obtain property by false pretence.

She was accused of defrauding citizens of the United States of approximately $18,000 between 2012 and 2013.
