No. 59 Friday, February 26, 2010
A Westmoreland man who is alleged to have stolen 31 bags of chicken from a meat shop to which he is employed was granted bail in the sum of $250,000 when he appeared before the Montego Bay RM Court on Thursday, February 25.

   Charged with embezzlement is Dwight Haughton, 36, of Bethel Town, Westmoreland.
   As a condition of his bail, he was instructed to report to the Westmoreland Police Station on Tuesdays and Fridays and was asked to surrender his travel documents. A stop order will also be placed at all ports of exit.
   He is booked to reappear before the court on May 27.
   The incident reportedly came to light
after the proprietor of the meat shop ordered 145 bags of chicken, which is said to value approximately $1,022,000.
   On February 6, 2010 when the delivery was made to the meat shop, Haughton, who is the storeroom supervisor, reportedly collected the bags of chicken and was caught on camera placing only 114 bags in the storeroom.
   After failing to give a satisfactory account of the missing 31 bags, the matter was reported to the police, which resulted in Haughton's arrest.
