Kingston, Jamaica (The Weekly Vice) - Tiffany James, a Jamaica woman charged with burglary had her bail revoked after she allegedly posed as a man in court and was later found to be wearing a fake penis in jail.
According to Corporate Area Resident Magistrate court prosecutors, James provided police with false information about her identity after she was arrested for burglarizing her neighbor's home.
James, who identified herself as Craig Mathews, appeared in court with a bald head and wearing mens' clothing. She was booked into an all-male jail facility while waiting to post bail.
James was initially arrested after she allegedly broke into her neighbor's home, then sent a small boy into the home to search for jewelry. James allegedly made off with more than $5,000 worth of jewelry and other valuables.
Her real identity was revealed when a woman arrived to post her bail, showed jail officials the suspect's picture ID and stated that she had come to post bail for Tiffany Jones.
Jail officials conducted an investigation and discovered that "Craig Mathews" was actually a female that had arrived to jail wearing an artificial penis.
Court Magistrate, RM Pusey, called James back into court and demanded an explanation.
"This is some kind of identity crises," stated Pusey as the courtroom broke out in muffled laughter. "It is not something to be amused about."
James begged for leniency, explaining that she lives as a cross-dresser and identifies herself as Craig Mathews.
"I apologize for the misinformation," said James. "The girl who came to bail me didn't know I am a woman, she only found my ID yesterday and knows me as Craig."
Tiffany Jones was released after posting $50,000 bail.
