US fugitive is to appear in court
A 47 year-old man who is wanted in the United States for a bank robbery 11 years ago, is to appear in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrates Court today for an extradition hearing.
He is Donald ‘John Stern’ Washington Gordon.
Members of the Fugitive Apprehension Team, the Hanover Special Squad and the Negril Police arrested Gordon on Wednesday.
He was reportedly held during an operation carried out by the team in Dephland Bottom, Little London.
In April 1997, Gordon and three other persons reportedly robbed The Fleet Bank in Brooklyn, New York of approximately US$400,000.
