No. 67 Wednesday, March 17, 2010
A man who was arrested after he was caught in possession of a roll of wire, which was reportedly stolen from a popular Montego Bay Resort, was sentenced to 240 hours of community service.

    Alvin McIntosh, 46, of Barrett Town, St. James, was facing a charge of receiving stolen property.
    Sentence was handed down by Resident Magistrate Vivienne Harris in the Montego Bay RM Court on Friday, March 12.
    McIntosh was jointly charged with 38 year-old Dalton Galloway who was not present in court when the matter was called up for mention and the court did not indicate anything in respect of the charge that has been laid against him.
    Prosecutors say on February 2 about 9:25am, the investigating officer was on duty along the Rosehall main road when on reaching the Palmyra Resort & Spa he observed a Toyota Corolla motor car parked along the fence with Galloway sitting in the driver's seat.
    The officer also observed an orange object thrown over the fence and a man standing at the fence.
    The man, who turned out to be McIntosh, a security guard at the hotel, then picked up the object, placed it inside the car and boarded the vehicle which sped off.
    The car was intercepted and during a search, a roll of wire valuing approximately $60,000, which belongs to the property, was found.
    When cautioned, McIntosh reportedly said to the officer, "A just somebody tell mi fi pick up something."
    Meanwhile, Galloway said he knew nothing about it.
