Guard gets bail on forgery charges

A security guard was yesterday accused of conspiring to forge a document and then presenting it to her employer.

Donnette Jupiter, who is attached to the Professional Guard Services Inc., was read two fraud charges by Magistrate Judy Latchman in Georgetown.

The first charge stated that between November 17, 2016, and September 25, 2017, at Georgetown, Jupiter conspired with a person or persons to forge a Guyana Police supernumerary constabulary precept, purporting to show same was issued by the Guyana Police Force.

It was further alleged that on September 25, at Subryanville, Georgetown, Jupiter, with intent to defraud, uttered to Paul DeFreitas, the Chief Security Officer of the Professional Guard Service Inc, a forged Guyana Police supernumerary constabulary precept, purporting to show it was issued by the Guyana Police Force.

Jupiter, 35, of Lot 20 Middle Road Pouderoyen, West Bank Demerara, denied both charges.

Attorney Paul Fung-A-Fat told the court that Jupiter was given the card by a police officer at the General Office area at Eve Leary on September 25.

However, prosecutor Adduni Inniss told the court that on November 17, the Professional Guard Services Inc. applied for a precept for the defendant. Sometime after, she presented a precept to her employer and after checks were made it was noted that the document was never issued by the police.

Jupiter was later granted $150,000 bail on each charge and the proceedings were then adjourned until October 30.
