A woman who was arrested and charged in connection with the theft of the mobile phone of the JPSCo CEO was offered bail when she appeared in the Corporate Area Criminal Court today.

Alecia Smith was charged after she was found with Kelly Tomblin’s Samsung Galaxy S5 cellular phone.

Smith had told the police that she bought the phone for 25-thousand Jamaican dollars.

She was offered bail in the sum of 50-thousand dollars and ordered to report to the Papine Police Station weekly.

Smith, who’s a bartender, is to reappear in court on April 21.

She was arrested at her workplace after the police tracked the phone to her.

The phone with 2-hundred thousand in call credit was robbed from Miss Tomblin as she exited JPS’ New Kingston head offices.
