The police are reporting that five persons from western Jamaica have been charged with breaching the anti-lottery scamming law.

Charged with conspiracy to obtain property are 29-year-old Kimberly Williams, 28-year-old Romain Jones, 35-year-old Mark Davy, 33-year-old Sheldon Binns, and 24-year-old Shericka Brown.

The police say Davy is also charged with possession of ganja and dealing in ganja.

They say Brown is booked to appear in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, June 1, while the others will appear in the Lucea Resident Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, June 7.

The police say the arrests and charges came as a result of the combined efforts of members of the Counter Terrorism and Organized Crime Investigation Branch and their counterparts from the United States of America.
