Post office worker charged with tampering

A porter who is charged with committing an offence under the Post Office Act was granted $5,000 bail after appearing in a Bridgetown court Wednesday.

It is alleged that last year, 33-year-old Jamal Laron Beckles, being a person employed at the Barbados Postal Service, opened a postal packet in the course of transmission by post, contrary to his duty.

The incident allegedly occurred on April 16, 2016.

The Kew Road, Bank Hall, St Michael resident, who is represented by attorney-at-law Shadia Simpson, denied the charge.

There was no objection to bail from police prosecutor Sergeant Martin Rock.

However, the prosecutor asked that conditions be imposed on Beckles who now has to report to the Black Rock Police Station every Wednesday by 10 a.m., with valid identification.

He was released after presenting the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court with a suitable surety to sign bail on his behalf.

    You guys already convict the man before his trial. At this time it’s only an allegation.

    Well,well, well. Here is a young man that has been given an opportunity to make an honest living ,as oppose to many who cannot even get a job removing trash that litter from our Streets. Yet, he decides that it is not enough to have a pay day (almost certain ) from our Government ,who by the way is broke.(so they claim).
    When entrusted, bonded in some case to deliver a service of this magnitude, one should be honest and trust worthy .Obviously, this Gentle lad probably saw or felt something in that package that ,(because of greed)he thought he deserved more than the actual consignee ,and took it upon himself to let his delivery skills go to work.Not smart.
    If indeed this accusation is found to be true,the full force of the law should be brought to bare ,knowing that many more of his deliveries never got to their intended owners or destination.
