One security officer from the Parish of St. Patrick, attached to one of Grenada’s leading security companies, is now on fifty thousand dollars’ bail, after appearing before Chief Magistrate Tamera Gill on charges of stealing and money laundering on Monday
The Mt. Rose resident who goes by the name of Troy Charles, has been slapped with two counts of money laundering and two counts of stealing, all indictable charges.
According to information emanating from the court, the charges for which Charles is now made to answer, purport to connect him to a series of illegal financial transactions in Grand Anse and Melville Street in the town of St George, between November 2015 and February 2016.
According to information reaching the Grenada Informer, it is alleged that those transactions involved the use of a credit card belonging to a foreign national. Sources said the credit card was allegedly used to access large sums of cash, which was later used in the perpetration of criminal activities.
During his brief stint in court on Monday, Charles indicated to the court that he is represented by defense counsel Peter David, who was at the time absent from the court. However with no objection to bail from the prosecution, Charles was placed on fifty thousand dollars bail with two sureties. He is required to report to the South St. George Police Station every Monday and Friday, between the hours of 6am and 6pm, he was also ordered to refrain from having any contact with witnesses in the matter.
Charles is due back in court on February 2nd 2017.
