Dancehall legend Bounty Killer brother, Wayne Price, is giving the deejay a bad name.
Killer’e brother appeared in court yesterday where he pleaded guilty to charges of larceny.
A Basseterre Magistrate’s Court judge in St Kitts fined him EC$3,000 which is approximately US$1,111. He also had to pay the fine before leaving court.
According to reports, Price was among Bounty Killer’s entourage traveling to St Kitts for a concert. The group was about to board a flight back to Jamaica on Sunday when the dancehall star’s brother was being checked out by a customer service agent, who left her phone on the counter.
The agent then realized that her phone was missing after Price left the counter. She raised an alarm and airport security checked video surveillance footage and saw Price taking up the phone.
When they found him he had already removed the SIM card and the batter from the instrument.
We reached out to Bounty Killer for a comment but no response so far.
