A housekeeper and an unemployed man from St James were yesterday charged by police personnel from Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) West for breaches of the Law Reform (Fraudulent Transactions) (Special Provisions) Act, 2013.
The housekeeper, 22-year-old Sasha Ann Thompson, and 25-year-old Oshane Dehaney were arrested last Saturday.

During the search, several items used in lottery scamming were reportedly found, resulting in their arrest.
