50 year old Vincentian charged with forgery

A 50-year-old Vincentian man has been charged with forgery of a Trinidad and Tobago Driver’s Permit. A Port-of-Spain Magistrate granted him $20,000 bail.

The following is a press release from the TTPS:

A 50-year-old Vincentian man was allegedly issued a speeding ticket. He was later charged with forgery of a Trinidad and Tobago Driver’s Permit and was granted $20,000 bail by a Port-of-Spain Magistrate on May 13th.

The accused of Pinto Road, Arima, who has been residing in Trinidad for the past 32 years, was charged with forgery of a Republic of Trinidad and Tobago Driver’s Permit by PC Ramsankar and is expected to answer the charge at the Chaguanas Magistrates’ Court on June 10th, 2022, as the matter was transferred to that court.

According to a police report, a driver was issued a fixed penalty notice for exceeding the speed limit, which was not paid and later incurred sanctions. Subsequently, officials of the Licensing Department received a query on the permit where further checks revealed the authority did not legitimately issue the document.

A party of officers attached to the Fraud Squad and the Licensing Department executed a search warrant at the suspect’s home, where they allegedly found and seized the fraudulent permit.

The multi-agency investigation was supervised by Snr Supt (Ag.), Fraud Squad, Arlet Groome, Supt (Ag.), Andrew Reuben, ASP Arnold Lutchman and Insp Jason David of the Fraud Squad and Transport Commissioner, Clive Clark of the Licensing Department, with field operations conducted and supervised by Insp Damian Thomas and Cpl Terrence Nowbutt of the Fraud Squad and Motor Vehicle Supervisor, Licensing Department, Keisean Bennet.
