MOCA Arrests Sixth Person on Hacking Charges

A sixth person was charged yesterday for breaches of the Fraudulent Transactions and the Larceny Acts by detectives from the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency, MOCA.

She’s Zedalin Thorpe-Rodduck. She joins the five other persons arrested and similarly charged last month. They’re Douglas Walker, Nasha Rolle, Ortolan Powell, Romaine Barrett and Travis Wilson.

All six are facing charges of possession of identity information, distributing identity information and conspiracy to defraud. All six will appear in the Kingston and St. Andrew Parish Court on Friday.

Thorpe-Rodduck was arrested and charged after evidence revealed her alleged involvement in a conspiracy. The other five were arrested on January 15 during MOCA operations in sections of Kingston and St. Andrew.

The police operations targeted people who allegedly robbed other people of millions of dollars through identity theft and other cyber related means.
