Man on bail for forging GRA cheques faces new larceny, forgery charges
Two former employees of Gafsons Industries Limited, one already charged for forging cheques, were on Wednesday released on $150,000 bail for stealing two air conditioning (AC) units and forging a document from their former employer.
Komalram Persaud, a 25-year-old bus driver of Section ‘C’, Block ‘Y’, Golden Grove and Robin Singh, a 29-year-old unemployed man of Grove Housing Scheme were jointly charged before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
The duo denied that between January 1-31, 2021, while being employed by Gafsons Industries Limited, they stole two air conditioning units valued at $273,186.
The men also denied that during the same period in question, with intent to defraud, they forged a document claiming to be from Gafsons Industries Limited.
The Chief Magistrate released the duo on $150,000 bail and adjourned the matter until August 11.
Meanwhile, Persaud is currently before the court with several others in connection with the alleged forgery for two cheques from the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) totaling $19.4M. He is currently out on $600,000 bail for that case.
