LISA MICHELLE GUYADEEN, of no fixed place of abode, was charged with larceny of $12,000, $18,000, $3,000 and $450, after being arrested by officers of the Fraud Squad, during an anti-crime exercise, conducted between Tuesday 5th and Thursday 7th December, 2017, in the Southern Division.

The matter was adjourned to Monday 11th December, 2017 and transferred to the Siparia Magistrates’ Court.
Guyadeen was charged by PC Ronald Kernahan and PC Navin Latchman of the Fraud Squad, on Thursday 7th December, 2017.
