On May 24,  2020, the owner was informed that the motorcycle was sold in South Oropouche by the same man however he failed to remit the proceeds of the sale to him. All attempts to have the man remit the money proved futile, the court heard.

A report was subsequently made to the police and Alexander was arrested by acting Sgt Breedy of Fyzabad Police Station on Monday.

The accused was handed over to the Fraud Squad where PC Kernahan subsequently charged Alexander for the offence of fraudulent conversion.
