A Diego Martin man was granted bail in the sum of $50,000 with a surety after he appeared before a Justice of the Peace Oliver Boodoo on Friday, charged with four counts of fraud and one count of larceny.
Romario Lamy, 28, of Diego Martin, was charged with the offence of larceny of $90,227 worth of alcohol and four counts of the fraudulent falsification of Hotel Electronic Inventory Records.
The accused, a former employee, was granted bail in the sum of $50,000. The matter is expected to be heard at the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court on June 1, 2021.
The Hilton Hotel reported to police that during the period August 2020 and November 2020, an employee at the hotel sent eight email orders to one of the hotel’s suppliers requesting several cases of Remy Martin VSOP Cognac and Glenfiddich Special Reserve 12 year.
The employee reportedly collected the alcohol at the supplier’s warehouse and did not submit the alcohol to the hotel’s inventory. He took it for himself. All eight orders were without the authorization and knowledge of the management of the hotel.
