Colombian allegedly carried cash from crime

A Colombian national was charged in Magistrates' Court this morning with being in possession of what she allegedly knew to be the proceeds of criminal conduct.

The court heard that Iliana Medina, 29, who resides in the United States, was apprehended at the airport with $9,387 in US currency on December 17.

Defence lawyer Dante Williams said that she had been visiting the Island and arrived on either December 13 or 14.

As it's an indictable offence, Ms Medina was not required to enter a plea.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo remanded Ms Medina into custody and adjourned the matter to January 2.
