A 22-year-old man appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court late this afternoon, charged with having 17 forged $100 notes.
Lawrence Michael Browne, of Coach House, Dunlow Lane, St Michael, was not required to plead when he went before Magistrate Douglas Frederick.
He is accused of having the money on June 5 (today) and purporting it to be genuine Barbados currency notes, while knowing it was forged.
Browne was granted $5 000 bail with one surety and returns to court on September 10. He was represented by attorney-at-law Allan Carter.
