Tylar Jno-Baptiste, a 24-year-old resident of Potters, is facing charges related to obtaining money by pretense, uttering one receipt, and forging another.
The alleged offenses occurred on January 29, 2024, at Old Parham Road.
Jno-Baptise is scheduled to make a court appearance on Monday.
Simultaneously, law enforcement is looking into a complaint filed by a woman who asserts that she bought construction aggregates from a supplier on All Saints Road, only to have an unidentified individual retrieve them on her behalf.
The complainant notified the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) that she had purchased from a hardware store on January 13.
However, upon her return on January 25 to collect the items, she discovered that they had already been picked up by someone unknown.
The woman claims to have spent $228 on the supplies and received a receipt. Shockingly, when she returned to buy additional blocks and retrieve the previously paid-for items, she was informed that they had been taken away by a truck.
The driver allegedly presented a digital copy of the receipt on his phone, raising concerns about the security of the transaction process. Police are actively investigating this incident.
