Lottery Scamming Case to be Transferred to High Court

Jamaica Crime News, St James: After four years before the St. James Parish Court, the prosecution is preparing to transfer the lottery scamming case against Sanjay Rankine to the higher court.

The 28-year-old welder of Crawford Street in Mount Salem made a brief appearance before presiding parish judge Natalie Creary-Dixon on Tuesday to answer to a charge of possession of identity information.

The court was told on Tuesday that the matter was ready to be transferred to the St. James Circuit Court, and a further mention date was set for May 21 for the proceedings to be carried out.

Creary-Dixon subsequently extended Rankine’s bail.

On January 6, 2015, the police, who were armed with a search warrant, carried out an operation and journeyed to Rankine’s Crawford Street home.

During a search of the premises, 16 lead sheets, a laptop and a cellphone belonging to the accused man were found. The devices reportedly contained identity information of persons residing overseas. Hence, he was arrested and charged.
