Woman’s Fraud Case, Court Awaits Car Evaluation
Facing a charge of larceny as a servant is Shaneel Roberts, 27, of Browns Town, St. Ann.
The matter was previously referred to mediation and an agreement had been made for Roberts’ car to be transferred to the complainant as part of her restitution payment.
During Thursday’s sitting, defence attorney Earnest Smith indicated to Parish Judge Sandria Wong-Small that the keys for the car, which is presently being housed at a police station in St. Ann, which is in the process of being evaluated, cannot be located.
Smith also disclosed to the court that one of the lights had also been removed from the vehicle.
Having listened to the attorney, Judge Wong-Small said she needs an agreement in regards to the evaluation and that she needs the matter resolve at the earliest possible date.
The matter was subsequently set for mention on July 20 and Roberts’ bail was extended.
Roberts was reportedly employed by the complainant as an accountant and was responsible for the preparation of the daily bank lodgements.
The discrepancies came to light after the complainant observed that some of the lodgement slips did not carry a signature or the official bank stamp. Further checks were made and it was discovered that between February and September 2016, US$28,000 could not be accounted for.
