Three more people are to be sentenced in St. Elizabeth after pleading guilty to lottery scamming charges.

They are: 25-year-old Troy Donaldson and 28-year-old Davion Lyttle, of Holland Village district, St. Elizabeth and 27-year-old Kerica Whyte of Northampton district in the parish.

They appeared in the St. Elizabeth Circuit Court yesterday where they pleaded guilty to breaches of the Law Reform (Fraudulent Transactions) (Special Provisions) Act.

The police say on the morning of February 4, cops carried out an operation at the premises of Donaldson and Lyttle.

They say several sheets of paper with identity information along with cellular phones were seized and both men charged.

On the morning of April 28, 2015 police personnel were reportedly on an operation in Northampton district, St. Elizabeth, when a shop and a house, belonging to Whyte were searched.

The police say the search revealed a book with identity information and electronic paraphernalia.

The items were seized and Whyte was subsequently charged for Knowingly Possessing Identity Information.

Donaldson and Lyttle are to be sentenced on Friday, while Whyte is to know his fate on June 30.
