Driver accused in liquor fraud offered bail

A driver employed to a wholesale in Papine, St Andrew, was offered bail in the sum of $500,000 in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court, Wednesday.

Charged with simple larceny and conspiracy is 42 year-old Owen Massey, who was fingerprinted.

The Crown alleges that Massey purchased liquor from J. Wray and Nephew and collect more goods than he had paid for.

It is further alleged that whenever he went to the liquor distributor he would speak to an employee there who would process his request.

An audit conducted by the company revealed that the amount of goods collected totalled $2.2 million. The employee suspected to have colluded with Massey was brought into a meeting. He suddenly tendered his resignation and is now being sought by the police.

Massey is to return to court on September 24 when the matter will be mentioned.
