The Westmoreland woman who the police say initially gave her name as Tanya Lewis, and was featured on the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s (JCF) Wanted Wednesday campaign, has been charged.

She has been identified as 29-year-old Crestida Lewis, otherwise called ‘Tanya’, of New Building district in Nain, Westmoreland.

Reports from the police are that the accused was employed as a cashier at a business establishment in the parish, and was given over $900,000 to deposit in an account.

It is alleged that Lewis did not make the deposit, and failed to hand over the cash to her employer.

She was then reportedly contacted on several occasions, but to no avail.

On Wednesday, April 10, Lewis turned herself in to the police after she was featured on social media as a wanted person, and she was subsequently charged with larceny as a servant.

She is scheduled to appear in the Westmoreland Parish Court in Savanna-la-Mar on Tuesday, April 23.
