Trio charged with laundering money

Three Pembroke residents yesterday denied charges of laundering almost $200,000 of drug money.

Erica Raynor, 40, Temiko Wilson, 25, and Travis Lowe, 20, were charged in Magistrates’ Court with knowingly concealing the proceeds of drug trafficking, or a related offence.

Ms Raynor was charged with four separate counts, including laundering $108,355.32 on an unknown date between January 1, 2008, and November 21, 2009.

She also allegedly laundered $49,308.86 sometime between January 1, 2008 and May 9, 2009, $6,384.15 between August 10, 2009 and February 3, 2011 and $5,880 on March 23, 2010.

Mr Lowe is facing two money laundering charges. Mr Lowe allegedly laundered $10,400 between September 24, 2009 and November 13 that year, and another $12,818.39 between October 17, 2009, and March 19, 2010.

And Mr Wilson was charged with a single count of laundering $11,492 on an unknown date between July and October 2010.

All three defendants pleaded not guilty to the offences before them.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo released the trio on $10,000 bail with sureties. They are expected to return to Magistrates’ Court in June for trial.
