A source tells REAL News that the manager of the Bridge Service Station on Valley Road telephoned the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and reported that a Bolans resident had attempted to obtain money with a photocopied cheque.

It is alleged that the man had presented a copy of an ACB-Caribbean cheque on the account of National Housing Development & Urban Renewal Co. Ltd.

The photocopied instrument was in the amount of $900 and he sought to exchange it for cash.

This offence reportedly occurred on Monday, September 25.

Police officers visited the service station, where the proprietor handed over the young man, along with the cheque.

According to the source, the suspect was arrested on suspicion of fraud and taken to St. John Police Station.

    • The government and their people just doing what they normally do . They are entitled , didn’t you know ? I wonder which senator from bolans ? Hmmmmmm

  1. Desperation is making people stupid. Who would ever think that a photocopy would pass for a proper cheque. Also how is it relevant that he is related to a senator if no name is being presented? Are they uncertain that he committed the crime?

  2. A reflection on the state of affairs in Antigua and Barbuda. In no way do I condone this action, but desperation often makes people irrational.
    This will get worse as things continue to deteriorate under this Gaston Browne led administration.
    Other territories have found ways to assist their people except Antigua and Barbuda. It is what it is with this idiot at the helm and the minions singing in support of him for their tainted bread.

    • Of course it is. How else you think they going to get clicks likes and of course that ad revenue. They know how to sensationalized the story to bring out the trolls.

  3. Was the cheque in his name? Was he detained at the service station until police arrived or did they tell him the money is coming so hold on?
