A 28-year-old man, charged with a number of fraud offences, has been remanded to HMP Dodds until January 24.
Jerome Omar Waterman, of Sisnett Road, Martindales Road, St Michael, is accused of issuing a forged RBC Royal Bank (Barbados) Limited cheque in the name of Ryan Ray Clark to Fusionz Boutique on June 19 in the amount of $1,100. He is also accused of forging the cheque with intent to defraud after allegedly purchasing a pair of shoes valued at $220 and receiving $880 in cash as a result of the illegal transaction.
On December 23 Waterman, with intent to defraud, also issued a cheque from the same bank in the name of Bruce Holder in the amount of $1,200. He also allegedly endeavoured to obtain from Fusionz Boutique a pair of $220 shoes, three pairs of slippers worth $225 and $755 via the forged cheque.
Waterman is further charged with possession of a fraudulent Barbados identification card, bearing the name Bruce Holder, for use in the course of criminal deception.
Station Sergeant Neville Reid objected to bail for the accused on the grounds that he was already on bail and has three matters pending before the court with warrants outstanding for his arrest. The prosecution also expressed fear that if granted bail, Waterman would not turn up for court.
