Fraud charge lands auto-technician in court

An auto technician who used a false cheque to pay for two boxes of car tint has just under three weeks to repay the money.

Gregory Patson Clarke, of No. 7 Clarke’s Road, Hothersal Turning, St Michael was also given a suspended sentence for committing the offence.

The December 23, 2017 offence states that Clarke dishonestly obtained , two boxes of car tint worth $1,490 from Carzone Inc. using a false CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank (Barbados) Limited cheque.

 The cheque was drawn from the account of MJC Auto Service and made payable to Carzone Inc.

Clarke went to the car dealership and ordered the two boxes of XSUN car tint. The manager assisted Clarke with his purchase and he paid for the items. When the cheque was deposited to Carzone's account, it bounced. Clarke was contacted a number of occasions and though he promised to rectify the issue he never did.

He apologised to the business and the court this week and was asked to return on October 31. The six month sentence is suspended for 12 months.
