A 50-year-old man was granted $50,000 bail by a justice of the peace after he was arrested and charged with fraudulent conversion.

Lester Herrera, of Barataria, will appear before a Port of Spain magistrate on March 31.

A police press release said from September 20-October 31, 2020, a woman paid a man $20,000 as a downpayment to build a two-bedroom house in Diego Martin.

The report said the construction never started and the woman tried unsuccessfully to get a refund.

A report was made to the Fraud Squad and WPC Walkes charged Herrera on March 10.

The investigation was co-ordinated by Snr Supt Groome, Supt Reuben and legal officer Sgt Bassarath.
