Prominent western Jamaica-based attorney, Dionne Meyler-Reid, who was arrested and charged under the recently-imposed Lottery Scam Act, was again offered bail when she appeared in the Western Regional Gun Court on Monday.
Meyler-Reid, a former judge, and three of her employees, were arrested on September 2 when a MOCA team descended on her Westmoreland-based office and reportedly found paraphernalia related to the infamous lotto scam. An illegal firearm was also reportedly found in her office.
A shortcut from the general Falmouth Gardens and Race Course areas to the main Foreshore Road in Falmouth has been paved and has shaved off approximately three kilometres of the journey from the west to the area.
According to mayor of Falmouth, Garth Wilkinson, "The road is able to withstand regular traffic similar to any thoroughfare leading to any large community."
Port Morant Police Constable Calvert Burton, who was accused of rape in September, was yesterday granted bail in the sum of $800,000, in the Morant Bay Resident Magistrate's Court.
