Story Picture
On June third, forty year old Alcine Eudithia, from Ghana, who was arrested and charged with two counts of obtaining property by deception was remanded to Hattieville prison after he fail to meet bail of five thousand dollars. Today an additional charge of obtaining services by deception was levied against him after it was discovered that Eudithia who was staying at the Chateau Caribbean hotel paid his bill of seven hundred and ninety nine dollars and fifty-two cents with a bad credit card. Viewers may recall that shortly after Eudithia checked into the hotel he visited the Barclays Bank Branch near the Belcan bridge. There he produced a Canadian passport and used a visa gold card to receive a cash advance of two thousand, five hundred U.S dollars. But a bank clerk got suspicious when Eudithia returned the following day to get an additional two thousand five hundred U.S. The bank investigated and found out that the name on the card was different from that in the U.S Navy Federal Credit Union Files.
