Admin manager on fraud rap
A 53-year-old administrative manager has been charged for breaches of the Larceny and Forgery acts.
Ivorine Rose from Yallahs Housing Scheme in St Thomas, was arrested and charged by detectives from the Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Branch on Monday.
Reports are that between May 2015 and July 2015, Rose, who was employed at a furniture and appliance store, caused cash loans to be prepared and disbursed in the names of persons who had previously done business with the company. The loan amount was in excess of $800,000.
The loans subsequently went into arrears and when the individuals in whose names the loans were taken out were contacted, they provided documentation to indicate that they did not borrow money from the establishment.
As a result, a report was made to the Fraud Squad and an investigation was launched.
Rose was arrested and charged for forgery and obtaining money by means of false pretence and is scheduled to appear in the Corporate Area Resident's Magistrate Court on Tuesday, January 5.
