CHARGED with fraud, a  Cunupia businessman was granted $350,000 bail when he appeared before a Justice of the Peace on Friday.

Police reported on Tuesday that Adesh Mano, 52, of Chin Chin Road, was charged with four counts of fraudulent conversion of sums totaling $308,000, when he appeared before JP Ali.

He was granted bail and the matter adjourned to May 24 and transferred to the Port-of-Spain Magistrates’ Court.

Four victims reported to police that during the period August 2019 and October 2020, they paid the accused varying sums, representing down payments towards the purchase of five vehicles. The accused reportedly failed to deliver the vehicles as promised and efforts by the victims to obtain a refund of the monies proved futile, police stated.

Investigations, supervised by Snr Sup.Arlet Groome, were launched into the matter and the accused subsequently surrendered to the police last Thursday.

Mano was charged with three counts of fraudulent conversion by PC Jemmet and one count of fraudulent conversion by WPC Gowrie, both of the Fraud Squad on Thursday.
