Montego Bay, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Man Caught with Counterfeit USD Notes: A St. James man who was reportedly caught with counterfeit US$10 notes was granted bail in the sum of $150,000 in the St. James Parish Court on Wednesday.
Davian Graham, 23, of Barnett Street in Montego Bay is before the court for possession of counterfeit USD notes.
Allegations are that on July 23, 2017, Graham went on the Howard Cooke Boulevard and tried to purchase jerk chicken and tendered a US$10 note to the jerk chicken vendor. Having detected that the money was fake, the vendor brought it to the attention of the police.
Graham was approached by the officer and when queries were made about the notes, he indicated to the officer that he had received two notes from his uncle and that he had used one before. A search was conducted on his person and four counterfeit US$10 notes were found in his possession.
On Wednesday, Graham’s attorney Dalton Reid made a successful bail application on his behalf. During his submission, the lawyer indicated to presiding judge Sandria Wong-Small that his client has denied the police’s claim that the notes were found on his person, adding that his client did not know that the notes were fake.
Bail was subsequently set at $150,000 with three sureties and reporting conditions were also attached.
The matter is set for mention again on October 11.
