Men cashed stolen cheques
Two men yesterday admitted cashing cheques that were stolen from a primary school.
Gregory Tucker, 21, and Wesley Stovell, 20, both from St George’s, pleaded guilty to dishonestly obtaining cash using cheques taken from St David’s Primary School.
The court heard that last July the principal of the school had left his office door open. He later discovered that a book of cheques had been removed from a drawer.
On July 23, Tucker attended Somers Supermart with a $400 cheque from the book made payable to “Dennis Ming” and cashed it.
Two days later, on July 25, Stovell attended the same store with another $400 cheque from the stolen book and cashed it. He did the same thing two days later with a $900 cheque at the Rosemont Bank of Butterfield.
The young men were both arrested, and initially pleaded not guilty to the offences, but changed their plea yesterday before their trial could begin.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo ordered social inquiry reports on both defendants, releasing them on bail until March 6.
