Police said a Carapichaima man was granted bail after being charged with four counts of fraud.
In a statement today the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) said 32-year-old Imraz Mohammed of Bank Village, was charged with the offences on March 23.
The TTPS said he was granted bail in the sum of $250,000 with a surety when he appeared virtually before Magistrate Indar Jagroo at the Port of Spain Second Magistrates’ Court on March 24. He was also ordered to pay compensation on a charge of larceny.
The TTPS said Mohammed was charged with three counts of obtaining property by use of dishonoured cheques, and one count of fraudulently obtaining credit. The matter was transferred to the Chaguanas Magistrates’ Court on March 26.
On the charge of larceny, the accused was placed on a bond in the sum of $3,000 and ordered to keep the peace and be of good behaviour for a period of two years. In default, he would have to reappear before the court to be sentenced. He was also ordered to pay compensation to the victim in the sum of $3,500 within one month, and if he fails to comply, he would face six weeks’ simple imprisonment.
A woman reported to police that on April 10, 2017, she paid the accused $3,500 to build and deliver a door. He failed to deliver on his promise and all efforts to obtain a refund proved futile.
