A former employee of Toyota Jamaica is among four people charged with defrauding the company of $25 million.

He is Davian McBean, a 35-year-old accountant from Kingston.

Police report that McBean conspired with three others, including a bank teller, to defraud the company. It is alleged that the accused fixed different documents and made payments to Customs and other businesses.

Police said he prepared different cheques and sent one set for payments, while the others were sent to a financial institution, which were changed. The alleged fraud was discovered by the company during a surprise verification.

This led to an investigation by the police, which revealed that $25 million was fraudulently converted.

This resulted in McBean and three others, including the bank teller, being charged. They are charged with 16 counts of conspiracy and fraudulent conversion.
