Dalton Forrester, a 35-year old American citizen who attempted to smuggle in over $100,000, in cash, into Jamaica, has been detained, and charged with multiple counts of money laundering-related offenses. He had concealed USD$101,378.00, upon his person, and in his luggage, upon his arrival at Sangster Airport, on April 9, 2016.
Forrester, who Jamaica authorities state is from New York, may be from Boston, as public records show only one African-American individual in the US with that exact name. That Dalton Forrester has an upcoming wedding set for September 2017, and if they are the one and the same individual, his fiancé, who has posted details about their relationship online, is in for a surprise.
The charges listed against him are:
(1) Bringing criminal property into Jamaica.
(2) Possession of criminal property.
(3) Concealment of criminal property.
(4) Cross-border movement of funds
(5) Conspiracy to possess criminal property.
There is a hearing set for today, April 20, 2016, at Montego Bay Magistrate's Court.
