A Chaguanas businessman has been charged with three counts of fraud after he uttered three cheques to the value of $1.4 million dollars to a Chaguanas bank.
The cheques were cleared and drawn on the account of the Arima Borough Corporation.
The 37-year-old businessman, who owns a construction firm in Chaguanas, was arrested at the same bank in Montrose, Chaguanas last week when he went to make an additional withdrawal.
The businessman from Francis Lalla Street in Chaguanas was arrested after investigations by Fraud Squad officers headed by Snr. Supt. Totaram Dookie.
