SELF-confessed homosexual Claude Pryce, popularly known as 'Wendy' and who was reportedly caught collecting almost $2 million from a post office, was on Tuesday remanded in custody when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.


The 28-year-old accused, who is visually impaired following a 2009 incident in which his lover gouged out his eyes, is suspected of being involved in the notorious lotto scam.


He was arrested on August 8 at the Constant Spring Post Office where he reportedly went to collect a Fed Ex package containing US$9,500 and two cheques for US$6,000. It is further reported that a team of detectives raided Pryce's St Andrew residence and $10,300 was found and seized. He was subsequently charged with conspiracy to defraud.


Yesterday when he appeared in court, the frail-looking young man told the magistrate that he could not presently afford a lawyer.


The court also heard, from the investigating officer, that the investigation was incomplete and as a result the matter was rescheduled for mention on September 11.
