The Montego Bay based district constable who is accused of stealing the credit card of slain American Heidi Ann Muth had his bail extended when he appeared before the St. James Parish Court Wednesday morning.
Floyd Grizzle is charged under the Fraudulent Conversion Act after he was allegedly found in possession of lead sheets and the credit card of Mrs Muth.
The case was mentioned and the matter will again be heard on February 20 next year.
US agents have been working with local law enforcement officers in the hunt for lottery scammers who have been linked to the murder of Mrs. Muth in Montego Bay, St. James last month.
The body of the 68 year-old retired school teacher from California was found with stab wounds on a dirt track in Ironshore on September 10, two days after she arrived in Jamaica.
She told friends that she was travelling to Jamaica to collect money owed to her.
However, a senior investigator told RJR News that the American was lured to Jamaica by lottery scammers in Montego Bay.
