US citizen nabbed at Norman Manley International Airport with over $350,000 Euros charged
- Categorized in: Mello FM News
The Pakistani-born American man, who was stopped at the Norman Manley International Airport last Wednesday with more than 350-thousand euros in his possession, has been charged.
Sohail Muhammad Siddiq was charged yesterday for breaches of the Customs Act and Proceeds of Crime Act.
Mr. Siddiq was arrested last Wednesday shortly after he arrived in the island on a flight which originated from Dubai. He reportedly had more than 350-thousand Euros or about 40 million Jamaican dollars in his possession.
He was arrested by members of the Transnational Crime and Narcotics Division who accused him of failing to declare the money.
Siddiq told investigators that he came to Jamaica to purchase cellular phones and other electronic items to sell abroad.
