Fraud case against five Burger King employees dismissed

By Racquel Porter 
  
The fraud case against five Burger King employees who were accused of stealing almost $10 million from the Harbour View branch, has been thrown out.
 
Terry Ann Oharo, Kamelia Wisdom, Astia Mitchell, Sharon Williams and Christina Lewis were charged with several counts of larceny as a servant, conspiracy to defraud, breaches of the Proceeds of Crime Act and engaging in transaction involving criminal property.
 
It was alleged that the fraud was committed over the period December 2022 to March last year.
 
The employees were accused of pocketing the funds after voiding orders legitimately placed by customers.
 
But the case was dismissed Friday for want of prosecution following applications by their attorneys Donahue Martin and Davion Vassell when they appeared in the Kingston and St. Andrew Parish Court.
 
The defendants were subsequently freed.
