The court today extended the $1 million bail for a wholesale operator from whose business place police allegedly recovered goods stolen from a delivery truck.

Jim Kim, who is a businessman from Spaldings, Manchester, is to return to court on May 30 on a charge of receiving stolen goods.

He pleaded not guilty when he appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court today.

Clerk of Court Joel Brown said there were witnesses, who needed to be subpoenaed for the trial to continue.

In the meantime, Detective Sergeant Oral Israel outlined that in December 2010, a truck laden with cooking oil and margarine valued at $4.3 million was hijacked in Ewarton, St. Catherine.

The truck was taken to Spaldings, Manchester, where the contents were allegedly offloaded at Kimís business place.

Kim was charged following investigations by the police.
