TWO MEN HAVE been accused of sacrilege after allegedly breaking into several churches across the island.

Police arrested 28-year-old Jamal Shane Quintyne of no fixed place of abode and 32-year-old Wayne Harold McCarthy of Seclusion Road, Black Rock, St Michael and jointly charged them with three counts of sacrilege.

Quintyne received an additional count of sacrilege.

The two allegedly broke into St Augustine Anglican Church, St George and several churches in the parishes of St Philip, St Michael and St Thomas between 2015 and April 2016.

Meanwhile, two people have been charged with handling stolen property after they allegedly received an item stolen from one of the churches.

They are 52-year-old Patricia Ann Grant and 53-year-old Jeffrey Adolphus Odle, both of Grazettes New Road, St Michael.

Quintyne, McCarthy, Grant and Odle are to appear at the District “A” Magistrates’ Court today. (PR/NB)
