Penal man charged for having fake insurance

A Penal man has been charged for uttering a forged document with intent to deceive.

Winston Thomas, 65, was granted $25,000 bail after appearing before the Siparia Magistrates’ court on December 15th 2020.

The charge came after officers from the Penal Police Station responded to a report of an accident in the vicinity of Joglo Supermarket, Penal, on December 12th 2020.

When asked to present his documents to the officers, Thomas produced an insurance certificate, which, on closer inspection, raised the suspicions of the responding officers.

When checked with the mentioned insurance company, it was proven that the document was allegedly false.

Thomas is scheduled to reappear in court on January 12th, 2021.
