Jamaica Crime News, St James: Law enforcers have arrested and charged Constable Derrol Williams from the St James Police Division for alleged lottery scamming offenses and possession of an illegal firearm.

The charges were laid against him yesterday (January 9) based on a ruling by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Constable Williams is charged with:

Reports from the Anti-Lottery Scam Task Force are that about 12:35 p.m. on Wednesday, December 27, 2017, an alleged associate of Constable Williams arrived at the Sangster International Airport on a flight from Orlando International Airport.

During a search of the associate’s luggage by customs officers, over US$14,000 was found and seized. Further investigations led to a search of the associate’s phone, which revealed conversations between Constable Williams, showing receipts from a remittance agency and approximately 10 pictures of credit cards,” the JCF further explained.

The JCF said Constable Williams was to appear before the Western Regional Gun Court today for the firearm charge, adding that he will appear before the St James Parish Court tomorrow (January 11) to answer to the other charges.
