A 57-year-old man was remanded to prison when he appeared earlier today (Tuesday) before Chief Magistrate, Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court, on fraud charges.
Clayton Alleyne, a resident of Bel Air, Georgetown pleaded not guilty when he was read three charges for collecting money under false pretense.
The first charge stated that between November 3 2016 and February 8 2017, Alleyne obtained cash in the sum of $516,000 from Samuel Manbodh under the pretense that he would make a $4M loan available to him. The second charge also stated that during the same time period he collected $700,000 from Dolan Lulchand promising that he would be given a $5M loan. The court heard that the final charge was that during the same time frame, he obtained $415,000 cash from Kezia Shepherd after promising to make a loan of $3.4M available to her.
The accused was refused bail on the grounds that he has several other fraud charges to be filed against him since the investigations are still ongoing. Also, Alleyne was previously charged for a similar offence and was granted bail.
He is expected to return to court on May 19 2017.
