[COURTHOUSE]:::Teen on fraud charge makes restitution

No. 67 Wednesday, March 17, 2010
A St. James teen charged for duping several persons into turning over their cash with a view to providing them with various items such as motor cars, appliances and computers, is still making effort to make full restitution.

    Damion Heath, 19, of Tucker, St. James is answering to a charge of obtaining money by means of false pretence.
    When the matter came before the Montego Bay RM Court on Friday, March 12, the clerk declared that Heath had indicated that he had paid two of the complainants outside of court.
    Heath, who also has a balance outstanding for another complainant to whom he paid $8500 on the last occasion, also claimed that he has paid that person the balance outside of court.
    The matter is again set for mention on March 29 during which time contact will be made with the complainants to verify those payments.
    It is alleged that Heath entered into an agreement with the complainants and managed to convince them to hand over money after promising to provide them with the above-mentioned items.
    According to police reports, between December 2008 and January 2010, the complainants handed over a total sum of $44,000 and to date they have not received the items.
    The matter was reported to the Area One fraud Squad and Heath was arrested and charged.
