Montego Bay, St James (McKoy’s News) – Forged Landing Stamp: A British man, who was arrested after a forged landing stamp was seen in his passport, was granted bail in the sum of $500,000 when he appeared in the St. James Parish Court today.
Jeffery McKay, who is of a London, England address, is facing charges of possession of a forged document and overstaying.
The accused man reportedly arrived in the island on February 4, 2017 and was landed until February 18. On the day of his arrival, he visited the passport office and obtained an extension until the 18th of May.
On the day of the incident, he reportedly went to the Sangster International Airport to pick up his children who had arrived in the island. Whilst at the airport, he was asked to produce his passport and it was at that time that a suspicious landing stamp was seen in the document.
Upon close observation of the document, the landing stamp indicated that he arrived in the island on May 21 and had up until August 19 to leave the island.
McKay was interrogated and checks also revealed that there were no records of him travelling that day. He subsequently admitted that he had paid $80,000 to get the stamp in his passport. He was arrested and charged.
During today’s sitting, McKay’s lawyer Henry McCurdy made a successful bail application on his behalf. He was offered bail in the sum of $500,000 with two sureties and with reporting conditions attached.
He is scheduled to return to court on August 10.
