Three cash-in-transit officers attached to Massy Security yesterday stood before a Georgetown Magistrate, who placed them on $200,000 bail each, for allegedly stealing $3,200,000 in cash and cheques.
The charge alleged that Clarence Patterson,50, Shawn Goodluck,44, and Cosmo Chichester,48, on November 13th, 2017 at Charlotte and Oronoque streets, stole one Republic Bank tamper-proof money bag which contained $1,000,000 cash, and $2,200,000 in cheques, property of Marics and Company.
All three men pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The facts presented by the prosecutor stated that all three of the defendants are cash-in-transit officers attached to Massy Security which is responsible for uplifting daily sales from companies and depositing same to the bank.
On the day in question, at about 4 pm, the officers went to Marics and Company Limited and uplifted the bag which contained the cash to be deposited at the bank. The company later discovered that the money had not been deposited to the bank and reported the matter.
Magistrate Judy Latchman placed the men on $200,000 bail each and adjourned the matter until April 25th.
