todays courtThree people charged in connection with more than $100,000 in fraud were released on bail Friday by District ‘A’ Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.

However, the trio was ordered to re-appear in court on October 4.

Reynold Randolph Roach, 49, of #3B Lower Estate Heights St Michael; Cherry-Ann Karen Lashley, 43, of Melrose, St Thomas and Robert DaCosta Walker, 46, also of Melrose St Thomas are jointly accused of stealing $39,750 from Prophet Fresh Fruit and Variety between March 26, 2016 and April 19, 2016.

He is also charged with stealing $8,000 between September 23, 2013 and June 30, 2015, which were the proceeds of a Barbados National Bank cheque, made payable to himself, but which belonged to Henderson Gibbs.

Additionally, between September 19, 2014 and April 27, 2015, Roach allegedly stole $14,500, the proceeds of a CIBC draft, payable to him, but which belonged to a Vernon Stevenson. He also faces two other similar charges that involved well over $23,000 of Stevenson’s money.
