Bank cashier charged with forgery

A woman employed as a cashier at a popular bank, and who allegedly facilitated the transfer of money from the account of a woman to that of popular entertainer George Nooks, was hauled before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Wednesday

Abbey-Gaye Thompson is charged with larceny as a servant, forgery, uttering forged documents and falsification of account.

The Crown alleges that the accused, who worked at a bank in Half-Way Tree, St Andrew, engaged popular entertainer George Nooks, who has been a customer of the bank for some time.

Nooks, who is the complainant in the matter, went to the bank to make a withdrawal of US$10,000. He was told by the accused that the bank did not have that amount of US dollars.

He then requested the amount in Jamaican dollars and was given $1.2 million. It was later discovered that the amount given to Nooks was taken from the account of another account holder of the same bank.

There were also other transactions, which aroused Nooks' suspicion. There are also several questionable withdrawals under investigation.

The matter is set for mention on July 24.
