St James, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – A St James man, who appeared before the St James Parish Court on Thursday, March 15, 2018, to answer to charges of possession of, importing and concealing criminal property, had his bail extended to May 3, 2018.
The accused, Jordan Subaran, was slapped with the charges after he was discovered attempting to smuggle cash amounting to US$60,000 through the Sangster’s international Airport in Montego Bay.
Reports are that on February 18, 2018, Subaran was coming off a flight from the United States of America at the Sangster’s international Airport, when he was questioned in connection with a firearm he had a permit for. The Airport police were suspicious and carried out further search of his luggage, which led to the discovery of cash amounting to over $60,000 United States dollars which were concealed in boxes.
He was subsequently taken into custody and charged under the Proceeds of Crime Act. The accused man is being represented by Attorney-at-Law Tom Tavares-Finson.
