Money counter, cash found at Elliott’s house — MOCA
MANDEVILLE, Manchester — A deputy superintendent of police assigned to the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) yesterday disclosed in the Manchester Municipal Corporation fraud trial that, among the items the team found when it searched Sanja Elliott’s home in 2016, was a money counter machine as well as cash in Jamaican and US currencies.
The law enforcement officer said that the machine was found in a home office while $1,598,000 and US$5,021 were found in a master bedroom at the house in Daley’s Grove, Knockpatrick, Manchester. The cash was seized. Elliott is a former deputy superintendent at the Road and Works Department of the corporation.
He is one of eight accused now on trial in relation to the misappropriation of over $400 million of public funds. The others are his wife Tasha-Gay Goulbourne-Elliott, his parents Myrtle and Elwardo, his former employee Dwayne Sibblies, former temporary works overseer Kendale Roberts, former bank employee Radcliffe McLean, and former director of finance David Harris, who on occasion also served in the capacity of chief executive officer (secretary/manager). Goulbourne-Elliott and Sibblies reportedly also lived at the home in Daley’s Grove. The deputy superintendent, who is also an accredited financial investigator, is the third MOCA representative to testify at the trial, to date.
