Woman accused of fraud remanded
Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

A woman who attempted to encash a cheque with the use of a fictitious identification card was remanded when she appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Charged with possession of forged document and uttering forged document and possession of revenue with an unlawful stamp is Tracey-Ann Moore, 39, of Old Harbour, St Catherine.

When Moore appeared before Resident Magistrate Marcia Dunbar-Green, she was ordered remanded, despite a bail application by Attorney-at-Law Ingrid Bryan.

The lawyer was told that the accused woman's true identity would have to be established before bail could be considered.

It was pointed out that the passport bearing the name Tracey-Ann Moore has to be verified.

Allegations are that on August 4, the accused went to the Old Harbour branch of a commercial bank.

She tendered a cheque valued at $40,000, purportedly from Jamaica Agricultural Society's pimento account.

Moore presented a drivers' licence in the name of Elizabeth Shoucoir as her identification.

When the ID was examined, bank personnel saw discrepancies and called the police.

Further investigations revealed the licence was from a batch that was stolen from the Inland Revenue Department two years ago.

Moore was subsequently charged by Detective Corporal Andre Smith of the Old Harbour police station.

The case will again be mentioned on September 30.
