No. 63 Monday, March 8, 2010
Two St. James men who have been charged in connection with a stolen motor car have been released on bail.

    Duane Daley, 23, and Fabian Lewis, 24, both of Gordon Town, St. Andrew, are facing a charge of receiving stolen property.
    They were granted bail in the sum of $200,000 each when they appeared before the Montego Bay RM Court on Thursday, March 4.
    The men's attorney Lloyd Sheckleford was not present in court but Attorney-at-Law Chumu Paris acted on his
    They are booked to reappear before the court on June 3.
    On December 11, 2009, the complainant was driving a white Toyota Corolla Station Wagon along Howard Cooke Boulevard in Montego Bay when he was stopped by two men.
    One of the men allegedly pointed a firearm at him and ordered him to exit the vehicle. He complied and the men boarded the vehicle and sped away.
    The matter was reported to the police who drove to Mango Walk in pursuit of the men but they were not seen.
    On December 16, Lewis, who was seen driving the car, was held during a spot check in Gordon Town, St. Andrew and was taken to that police station.
    Daley later turned up at the station and claimed ownership of the vehicle.
    The owner, who had given the complainant permission to operate the vehicle as a taxi, was contacted and she later identified her car.
    When cautioned, Daley told the police that he had purchased the vehicle from his uncle but efforts to locate the uncle proved futile.
    In the meantime, Lewis said he had borrowed the car from Daley.
    The two were arrested and charged.
