Rianne Fuchong a 32-year-old woman from Tunapuna Road, Arima will appear before a Port-of Spain Magistrate today charged with larceny totalling $279,400 from three victims.
Fuchong was arrested during an anti-crime exercise on August 20th by officers of the Fraud Squad.
She was later separately charged with three counts of larceny in the sums of $161,400, $100,000, and $18,000, by W/Cpl Jamillia Joseph-Francis, Cpl Ricardo Toney and WPC Efaye Jointe, respectively on August 23rd.
According to police reports the money was down payments for motor vehicles made to the accused by three victims between Friday 24th April 2015, and Friday 7th August 2015.
The payments were allegedly made to Fuchong after the victims were led to believe that she was in a position to sell certain motor vehicles.
When Fuchong, owner of Riri’s Marketing, failed to provide the vehicles in question and all efforts to be refunded proved futile, a report was made to the Fraud Squad.
Investigations were led by Snr. Supt. (Ag.) Totaram Dookie, of the Fraud Squad.
