Fraud Squad officers charged a 45-year-old postal worker with larceny servant in the sum of $59,008.25 on on Thursday.
Alice Baptiste, a postal office leader, attached to Arima Post Shop, was granted bail by Justice of the Peace Young in the sum $150,000, and is scheduled to appear at the Arima Magistrates’ Court on December 27, 2023.
The charges stem from a report where a sum of cash representing sales, was allegedly collected by a postal office leader, but was never credited into the company’s account.
The matter was reported to the Fraud Squad and an investigation was launched by acting Sgt Edwards, under the supervision of Insp Smith and with the assistance of Snr Superintendent, Groome and Cpl Edwards. Upon conclusion of the investigation, the decision was made to charge Baptiste for the offence of Larceny Servant.
