Woman Arraigned on $170K Fraud Scheme

A female employee of a local security company was released on bail after facing a list of fraud related charges totalling $170,000.

Tameka Dean, 38, of Marathon Estates, was an Office Manager at Intertech Group Limited when she reportedly committed 116 counts of fraud.

She was charged with 58 counts of falsification of accounts and 58 counts of stealing by reason of employment.

Police allege that Dean committed the crimes between February 1, 2012 and September 13, 2013.

It is alleged that Dean stole cash and altered her personal payroll on numerous occasions and in a few cases that of another employee.

The accused pleaded not guilty to all counts of fraud when she appeared before Magistrate Guillemina Archer and was granted $30,000 bail with two sureties.

Dean was represented by attorney Richard Bootle.

She elected to have her matter heard in the magistrate’s court and will head back for trial on May 28.
