Teens charged with forgery

| 02/04/2009

(CNS): More than a year after they were arrested, four teenagers, aged between 14 and 17, have been charged with various offenses, including forgery of currency notes, possession of counterfeit notes and uttering forged currency (which is presenting forged currency for use as payment or using as legitimate currency). Police said today that the young men were arrested in 2007 during an investigation by officers from the Financial Crime Unit and will appear in court on 28 April. The RCIPS said that now that the matter was before the courts they could not provide any further comments on the case.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling crime stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.

    This is the most absurd thing i have ever heard. This is what our Police spend there time on instead of searching out the criminals and murderers in this country, Two years to charge children who were 12-15 years old when this incident occurred. Sure this is serious but send them back to their parents for a good spanking and if the parents weren’t prepared to do it, hold them accountable.

    One of these kids is know 17.  Will he now be charged as an adult? Our judiciary system and Police force is in such a shambles now, Consider this, two years to bring charges against 3  underage kids, I just cant imagine how long it will take for them to resolve some of the many murders that have taken place.  Where are their priorites? I guess arresting kids for photocopying dollar bills and writing tickets for expired licenses whilst they hold up traffic in the mornings are high on their list.

    Throw this one out fools and find something better to spend the country’s money on. You most likely are going to lose on the basis of exceeding the statue of limitations anyway.

    Will someone please take charge of the Police force. Send Jack back and give us someone with a bit of common sense. Wish we could vote him out along with the PPM!!!

    Arrested in 2007 and charged in 2009.  What a shambles!

      To the best of my recollection the statue of limitations is six months in which one must be charged after an arrest. I wonder if this is another law suit we have to face again.

    Why has this taken two years to come to court?

    IF only they could’ve used their intelligence and creativity for an honest, productive, good result instead of doing the wrong thing and using their ‘talents’ to commit a crime, one that may be on their record for a while to come.  Hopefully they realise their mistake and make a change for the better in the end!
