A 49-year-old landscaper is facing fraud charges.
It is alleged that on April 2, with intent to defraud, Stephen Christopher Julian Maynard of #13 Chelston Avenue, Culloden Road, St Michael forged a First Citizens Bank (Barbados) Limited cheque payable to Platinum Architectural Inc., for $6,105.25. He is also accused of uttering and obtaining the same cheque.
While police prosecutor Sergeant Cameron Gibbons did not object to bail for the accused, he urged that the court impose conditions.
Maynard was released on $6,000 bail which he secured with one surety.
He must now report to the Hastings Police Station every Monday and Thursday before noon, with valid identification.
His second court appearance is on July 14.
