Confessed lottery scammer Akeem Fisher was again remanded in custody after he entered a guilty plea in the Clarendon Home Circuit court for breaching the Fraudulent Transaction Special Provision Act of 2013.

The 21 year old, who is scheduled to attend court next Friday was arrested and charged two weeks ago, after police raided his house in Darlow in Mocho, Clarendon.

The police reportedly discovered a number of lead sheets and other lottery's scamming paraphernalia during the raid.

Fisher's arrest came amid a flurry of arrests in Area Three which the police say are linked to lottery scamming activities.

According to the lawmen, players in the illicit activity are being pushed out of their traditional western bases and, are, migrating to the central regions.
