Jamaica Crime News, St James: Omar Simms, who was reportedly found in possession of a laptop and a mobile phone with identity information belonging to foreign nationals, was told to return to the St. James Parish Court in 2020.
Simms, who is facing a charge of possession of identity information, made a brief appearance before presiding parish judge Natalie Creary-Dixon on Tuesday.
During Tuesday’s sitting, it was disclosed that the Communication Forensic and Cybercrime Unit, (CFCU) is yet to assign an analyst to the case.
In light of that, the judge subsequently set a further mention date for January 21, 2020. Simms’ bail was extended.
Reports are that sometime in January 2016, the police carried out a special operation in Rose Heights during which Simms’ premises was searched. A laptop and a mobile phone which contained identity information of persons living overseas were subsequently found.
Simms was arrested and charged.
