A 22 year old St. Lucian national who was nabbed during a police operation last week Monday, has been charged with 3 counts of money laundering, 2 counts of attempt to commit a crime (fraud by false pretense) and 1 count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.
Kishael Conchon, who resides at Grand Anse, St. George, appeared before Chief Magistrate Tamara Gill last week Wednesday and was granted bail in the sum of EC$30, 000, with 2 sureties.
THE NEW TODAY understands that the young lady, who was released late last week Wednesday evening, recently completed a degree in psychology at St. George’s University (SGU).
Police arrested her after a quantity of fake ATM cards, MoneyGram and Western Union transfer receipts along with other items were found in her possession.
The St. Lucian national has retained the services of Attorney-at-Law, Derick Sylvester, who informed the court last week Thursday that his client is merely a victim in the matter, which he would like to expeditiously dispose of.
The matter was adjourned to today (Friday, March 24).
Conchon is the fourth non-national to be arrested and charged for the crime of money laundering this year.
Three Romanians were deported last week Thursday after pleading guilty to charges of money laundering at the St. George’s Magistrate Court for crimes committed in January and February.
