Young is accused of forging a cheque for $100 from Carlos Walker
Leroy “The Grand Master” Young, 46, a resident poet of Pinks Alley, was arraigned this morning before Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith on forgery charges.
According to police, Carlos Walker, owner of JMS Paralegal Services, reported that he was contacted by a representative of Wellworth Store who reported that they were in possession of a Belize Bank cheque dated October 25, 2013, for one hundred dollars from his business that had bounced.
Walker, whose house had been burglarized earlier this month, had noticed that the cheque book had gone missing, but was not worried about it since none of the cheque leaves had been signed.
Young was represented by attorney Bryan Neal and was read charges of forgery, uttering upon a false document, and being in possession of a false document, charges to which he pleaded not guilty.
He was offered bail of $500 and one surety of the same amount and must report to the Queen Street Police Station every Monday between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. He must not contact Walker and is scheduled to reappear in court on December 18, 2013.
