Accused Lottery Scammer Remanded


A man accused of scamming a United States resident of more than US$1,000 was Monday remanded into custody when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court.

The accused, Carlton Miller, is scheduled to reappear in the Home Circuit Court on Friday when his attorney, Hensley Williams, is expected to make another bail application.
Senior Magistrate Judith Pusey had Monday ordered that the matter be transferred to the circuit court following an application by the prosecution.

Miller was arrested on February 12 at a premises off Maxfield Avenue in Kingston 13. A number of items were found at the premises, including a book containing the names and addresses of persons living in the United States, a passport, magic jack, cell phones, laptops and other documents.

In making the bail application Monday, Williams told the court that none of the items seized were found on Miller. Additionally, the lawyer said that there was no record to show that his client made any phone calls to the victim in the case.
“They have a book with the victim’s name but it wasn’t taken from him,” Williams said. “He doesn’t live at the premises. He was visiting there,” added the attorney.

But the court was told that Miller had money that was received through scamming activities.

RM Pusey said she wasn’t mindful to give the accused man bail and told Williams to apply for full disclosure in the matter and renew his application in the Home Circuit Court on Friday.
