Reports reaching MiyVue suggest that the alleged act took place approximately three weeks prior to Newman’s arrest (Oct. 12). These reports further suggest that the alleged crime took place at the same department at which Newman is said to be employed.
MiyVue understands another worker of the said department reported that her blackberry was stolen while she was at work and following preliminary and subsequent investigations, Newman was slapped with the charge.
Newman, ACP Liburd confirmed, was granted bail the day after her arrest (Nov. 4) and will appear before a court of law possibly shortly.
Addressing rumours which suggest that blank or unissued passports were discovered at Newman’s home by police, or that she was found carrying blank or unissued passports, the ACP explained that according to information he has received, nothing of the sort transpired.
“The rumour is that when the police went to search her house for a cell phone, they found passports. That is not true. According to the information which I have received, her house was never even searched in relation to any blackberry phone. I don’t know if her house was searched years ago, but it was not searched in relation to this incident.”
