The director of Executive Rentals Inc. and Premier Pre-Owned Vehicles Inc. appears in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court today charged with 67 counts of criminal deception.
The charges, valued at more than $4 million, were laid against the 59-year-old Rodney Wilkinson of # 2 Friendly Hall Development, Jackmans St Micheal yesterday.
Police say the victims of the offences were predominantly Globe Finance Inc. and Nassco Finance.
The operations of Executive Rentals at Worthing, Christ Church came to a halt earlier this month after Globe Finance, Simpson Finance and another automobile financing entity took possession of more than 100 vehicles.
The Fraud Squad of the Royal Barbados Police Force had been probing reports related to loans for vehicles that did not exist following official complaints from Globe Finance and Nassco Limited that they were unable to locate vehicles they wanted to repossess.
