Two instances of cheque fraud at separate service stations are under investigation

Two cases of fraud — occurring at separate service stations — are
being investigated by the Police.

Reports say the accounts manager at the M&M Service Station
telephoned the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and
complained that, on January 18, a cheque issued by one man to
another had been cashed at the business place.

However, the cheque was returned by the bank due to insufficient
funds on the issuer’s account.

A search was carried out for the alleged offender, who was found on
All Saints Road, and he was iasued certain directives by the Police. 
Meanwhile, a case of uttering, in which someone tried to cash a
stolen cheque, is also being probed.

Reports say the manager of the Valley Road Service Station
telephoned the CID and complained that a man  had presented a
FirstCaribbean International Bank cheque at the business place and
attempted to change it.

However,  the manager had been privy to information that the
cheque had been reported stolen. 

This offence reportedly occurred on January 26 on Valley Road.
