The police have widened their probe into the activities of a St James couple who have been arrested for their alleged involvement in the lottery scam.
The police say the couple is also being investigated in connection with a case of identity theft after several debit cards bearing the names of several overseas banks were also seized at their home in Anchovy, St James.
Investigators say the man and his common-law wife, whose names have not been released, are to be interviewed in the presence of their attorney this week.
The police report that the couple was taken into custody by members of the Anti-Lottery Scam Task Force following an early morning operation in the community yesterday.
It is reported that during a search of their home, several sheets of paper bearing the names of persons living overseas along with other paraphernalia of the lottery scam were seized.
The police say a quantity of US and Jamaican currencies along with several electronic devices were also discovered.
