Teller accused of ripping off former GG to face more charges
The fired bank teller accused of stealing tens of thousands of dollars from the account of former Governor General Arthur D. Hanna Sr. learned yesterday that he will be facing additional charges.
Former Bank of The Bahamas employee Cameron Rolle Jr., 21, was supposed to go to trial this week on allegations that he made a series of unauthorized withdrawals from Hanna’s account from October 17, 2017 until April 16, 2018. The 22 withdrawals during that period totaled $49,600.
However, Senior Magistrate Derence Rolle-Davis who has carriage of the matter was out of office.
As a result, the matter was adjourned by Magistrate Samuel McKinney.
The prosecutor, Inspector Lakisia Moss, said that Rolle was facing additional charges – and proposed to add more witnesses.
The arraignment was deferred until next month with the consensus of Moss and Rolle’s attorney, Romona Farquharson-Seymour.
Rolle, of Golden Gates Number 2, faces charges of stealing by reason of employment, laundering the proceeds of criminal conduct, and the acquisition of the proceeds of criminal conduct.
He is on bail.
