Businessman charged

A Bridgetown businessman has been hauled before the court for using cash rather than cheques to pay for precious metals.

James Blackett, the owner of The Gold Place, is facing three charges under the Precious Metal and Second Hand Metals Act.

The 38-year-old was granted $5,000 bail when he appeared at the District “A” Magistrates Court today. He is scheduled to return to court on September 3, 2014.

The police are reminding the public that they must be paid by cheque when selling precious metal to dealers. They must also produce and present their National Identification Card, a valid passport or drivers licence when conducting such business.
