A 37-year-old waitress, accused of several counts of fraud, was granted $37,000 bail with strict conditions when she appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court over the weekend.
Tachira Femi Burke, of Sergeants Village, Christ Church, is alleged to have committed 25 indictable offences between December 11, 2015 and June 24, 2016.
On one count she is accused of endeavouring to obtain $1,400 from the account of Champion Auto Wrecker Service Inc maintained at the RBC Royal Bank (Barbados) Limited via a false cheque made payable to her. On another count she is alleged to have dishonestly obtained $1,800 from the company’s account, while on the 23 other occasions $1,400 via the same means.
The accused was not required to plead to the indictable charges when she appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.
And while there were no objections to bail by the prosecutor she now has to report to Worthing Police Station every Monday and Thursday before noon with valid identification; hand over all travel documents to the court and must apply for permission to travel.
Burke returns to court on October 9.
