A Port of Spain woman was granted bail in the sum of $30,000 when she appeared before a Justice of the Peace charged with uttering a forged valuable security.

Serlana Joseph, 30, of East Dry River, was also charged with attempting to obtain the sum of $3,500 by false pretence when she appeared before JP Stephen Young on Friday.

She is expected to appear in virtual court on October 1.

A bank employee reported to police that a customer presented a cheque in the sum of $3,500 to be drawn on a business account on Thursday.

Upon further verification, the cheque was found to be fraudulent and the proceeds were not paid out.

A report was made to the Fraud Squad and officers subsequently arrested a female suspect in connection with the incident.

Joseph was charged with the offences by WPC Crawford of the Fraud Squad.
