A man who is accused of defrauding more than $250,000 from a bank in the Corporate Area recently, will have to wait in police custody for a month to learn if he will be granted bail.

Peter Fowlin, who is charged with simple larceny and uttering forged documents, appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Friday.

According to the allegations against him, Fowlin went to the Corporate Area-based financial institution, where he lodged several cheques over a period.

He subsequently withdrew a total of $253,366.

The activities were flagged as suspicious, and a probe was subsequently launched by the bank, which later notified the police.

Following the completion of intense investigations, Fowlin was arrested and charged.

The case file remains incomplete, and the matter was adjourned until April 20.

Fowlin was remanded in police custody as a result.
