Custom Broker on $20,000.00 Bail for Fraud Charges

Well-known customs broker from the village of David in St Patrick’s has been placed on twenty thousand dollars bail with two sureties on fraud related charges.

 According to information reaching the Grenada Informer Frankly Denis Roberts, a man known for his professional demeanor as a custom broker was taken into custody last Wednesday and subsequently charged in connection with Fraudulent Breach of Trust, a charge that purports to link him with the disappearance of just over thirteen thousand dollars allegedly paid by a customer to clear a vehicle on the St. George’s Port.  

In a brief appearance before Chief Magistrate Tamara Gill at the St. George’s Number One Magistrate’s Court last Thursday, the prosecution team first noted their intention to object to having Roberts placed on bail on grounds that he has a similar matter before the Supreme Court down for trial in the October assizes, in addition to the seriousness of the offense.

 Defense Counsel Peter David reminded the court that the matter at the High Court is of some vintage, dated back to 2007 and should not be a determining factor in a bail application.

 Roberts was subsequently placed on twenty thousand dollars bail with two securities. He is due to make his second court appearance on November 12th.
