Credit And Debit Cards Skimmers Granted Bail

A St Mary woman and her boyfriend, who were arrested following a seizure of a skimming device and several debit and credit cards, were granted bail when they appeared before the St Ann Parish Court on Friday, May 13.

Charged with breaches of the Cybercrime and Larceny Act are Tracey-Ann Campbell, 24, of Boscobel, St Mary and Alwayne Henderson, 26, of Claremont, St Ann.

Reports are that on May 2, 2016 at about 10:30 a.m., Campbell, who is a tour representative at a prominent St Ann hotel, was at work at the front desk when she was seen acting strangely.

The security manager was alerted and during a search, a skimming device was found in her knapsack and she claimed that she obtained it from her boyfriend.

The police were later summoned and she handed over the device and admitted to using it to swipe over 15 debit and credit cards of some of the guests that morning.

Campbell then informed the police that she was to meet her boyfriend in Ocho Rios to give the device to him.

The police later received information and Campbell’s boyfriend, Henderson, was intercepted in Fern Gully as he headed to Ocho Rios.

His vehicle was searched and 22 credit and debit cards were found. He could not account for them.

It was further heard in court that Henderson’s house was also searched the following day and five credit cards and a laptop were seized.

Campbell was granted bail in the sum of $300,000 with three sureties, while Henderson was offered $800,000 bail with two sureties.

The matter will again be mentioned on May 27.
