Two men were yesterday arraigned on several fraud related charges before they were remanded to prison.
Carroll Burrows, 40, of Oxford Avenue, appeared before Magistrate Cara Turnquest and was charged with two counts of money laundering, two counts of possession of a forged document, two counts of uttering a forged document, and two counts of fraud by false pretenses.
It is alleged that between November 21 and November 22, 2018, Burrows presented two forged Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) checks in the amount of $7,000 and $10,000, payable to Thomas Rolle and Theodore Knowles, respectively, and obtained the cash from RBC, Mackey Street.
The checks were drawn on the account of Cable Bahamas.
Burrows, who was represented by Ian Cargill, was charged along with 28-year-old Juan Adderley, of Victoria Gardens, who was represented by Keevon Maynard, on three additional fraud related charges.
The pair was charged with one count of possession of a forged document, one count of uttering a forged document, and one count of fraud by false pretenses.
It is alleged that on November 23, 2018, Burrows and Adderley presented a forged RBC check in the amount of $10,000, payable to Ronald Cartwright, and drawn on the account of Cable Bahamas, in attempts to obtain the cash from RBC, Mackey Street.
Both Burrows and Adderley pleaded not guilty to all charges.
