A 36-year-old man was granted bail with a surety in the sum of $75,000 from Justice of the Peace Glen Balkaran after he was charged with fraudulent conversion in the sum of $33,000.
Devon Ramadar of Moruga, who was charged on 23rd March, is expected to appear at the Siparia Magistrates’ Court on April 13.
According to police reports, a woman allegedly paid the sum of $33,000 to a man, for the purchase and delivery of building materials to be used on an ongoing project. The materials were to be delivered on October 4th, 2021. However, the materials were allegedly never delivered as promised, and all efforts to acquire a refund proved futile.
Officers of the South and South Western Division conducted investigations into the matter. During the period March 21st, to March 23rd, 2023, officers proceeded to the home of the suspect, with a search warrant. After the exercise, the suspect was detained, at the Fraud Squad office on continuing enquiries.
