Post office clerk denies stealing accusations

A chief clerk at the Post Office in Fresh Creek, Andros, is accused of making false entries in the money ledger to conceal the theft of $70,802.29.

Prosecutors say Terry Neymour, 52, of Behring Point, Andros, falsified records that did not show that she received funds for local money orders and post box rentals.

Neymour allegedly committed the crimes between 2016 and 2020.

She appeared before Deputy Chief Magistrate Andrew Forbes on Monday, facing 11 counts of falsification of accounts and 11 counts of stealing by reason of employment.

Neymour elected trial in the Magistrates’ Court and pleaded not guilty to all charges.

She returns to court on February 8 for trial.

Although the magistrate lacked jurisdiction to grant bail for the offenses, Neymour’s lawyer, Ramona Farquharson-Seymour, made an emergency bail application to the Supreme Court.

She has been released on $9,000 bail with two sureties.
