One of two men held for theft granted bail

The Star (Jamaica) - - NEWS -

One of two men im­pli­cated in a stolen motor ve­hi­cle mat­ter was granted $ 100,000 bail in the Cor­po­rate Area Res­i­dent Mag­is­trate’s Court on Tues­day.

He is Lorenzo Godfrey, 28, a mor­ti­cian from Claren­don, who has been charged with lar­ceny of motor ve­hi­cle and con­spir­acy.

Shawn Scully, who is jointly charged with Godfrey, was re­manded.

Both par­ties are to re­turn to court on De­cem­ber 12, when the mat­ter will be men­tioned, as the file is in­com­plete.


Al­le­ga­tions are that both par­ties con­spired to steal the com­plainant’s motor ve­hi­cle from the Caribbean Ce­ment Com­pany park­ing lot.

It is al­leged that the motor ve­hi­cle, a Toy­ota Hi­ace bus, was tracked to Scully, who couldn’t give a proper ac­count of the van to the cops.

The court heard that Scully had told the po­lice that he got the van from a man to do some repairs.

How­ever, the pros­e­cu­tion said that the motor ve­hi­cle had on a track­ing sys­tem and it was traced to Scully.
