A Carenage man was granted $50,000 bail when he appeared before a Justice of the Peace on Friday, charged with obtaining goods by the use of dishonoured cheque.
Jason Charles of Haig Street appeared before Justice of the Peace Stephen Young on July 1, to answer to the charge.
He is scheduled to reappear at the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court on July 29.
A business owner reported to police that on December 4 2021, he sold a quantity of beverages valued at $16,520 to a man who effected payment for the goods by means of a cheque.
The victim reportedly deposited the cheque into his bank account, but it was later returned to him with the notation ‘insufficient funds’.
All attempts by the victim to obtain a payment from the man proved futile.
A report was made about the matter to the Fraud Squad and officers under the supervision of W/Sgt (Ag) Davidson, W/Cpls (Ag) Murray and Bunbury, conducted an exercise which resulted in a male suspect being arrested in connection with the matter.
Charles was charged by W/Cpl (Ag) Bunbury of the Fraud Squad with the offence on June 30.
