The People\'s National Party councilor caretaker who has been charged in connection with a quantity of light bulbs found at a house in St. Andrew is to appear in court today.

Andrew Baxter is to answer to a charge of unlawful possession of property.

Mr. Baxter contested the Stony Hill seat for the PNP in the local government elections last December.

He was charged last week by the Constant Spring police after over 1,600 lights bulbs were found at a house in Stony Hill.

The police say they discovered the bulb after a motorcar, which was reported stolen in April, was stopped during an operation.

According to investigators several bulbs were found in the car and more were later found at a house.

Two teenagers, one of whom is the son of Mr. Baxter, were arrested in connection with the find.

The bulbs are believed to be linked to the controversial Cuban light bulb programme.
