[www.inewsguyana.com] – A 24 – year – old former employee of Bacchus Drug Store was fined $100,000 with an alternative of 36 months imprisonment on a larceny charge.
Raphael Laurie of Supply, East Bank of Demerara, was found guilty and convicted for this offence before Magistrate Judy Latchman.
The charge stated that on July 30, 2013 at Bacchus Drug Store, Saffon Street, Georgetown, being employed as a clerk, he stole $80,071, property of Mohamed Bacchus.
Laurie was represented by Attorney-at-law, Adrian Thompson.
He is facing four other embezzlement charges before Magistrate Ann McLennan. The Court heard that the defendant has similar matters involving the same virtual complainant pending before another court, and other charges are likely to be pressed against him soon.
Laurie was employed as a sales clerk with Mohamed ‘Bobby’ Bacchus, proprietor of Bacchus Drug Store, and during that time, he conducted business and never paid in the proceeds.
