When the accused cheese thief appeared in court on Thursday October 13, 2016, prosecutors alleged that he stole pallets of Tastee Cheese Products valued at US$160,000 (or just over JMD $20.5 million) on September 23. It then took investigators two weeks to track him down.

Ortiz, who was being held in the Bergen County jail, was offered bail at US$150,000 (JMD$19.2 million)
