Police recover $70,000 in alcohol after fraudulent transaction

An attempt to have a Christmas filled with alcohol was foiled after police were able to recover over $70,000 of stolen liquor.

On Thursday a wholesale liquor outlet was issued a fraudulent cheque by someone posing to be a customer for the delivery of the alcohol.

Reports suggest that only after the transaction was completed that the supplier realized they had been duped.

A report was made and investigation led police officers to an area in Enterprise, Chaguanas where the items were recovered.
