A man who pretended to be a cop and collected $75,000 to help another in a divorce case found himself before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.Sherwin Prince, 44, appeared before Magistrate Faith McGusty on Wednesday. Prince, of Plaisance, East Coast Demerara, denied the charge which stated that between May 22 and May 23, 2019 at Georgetown, with intent to defraud, he obtained $75,000 from Ewart Mathild, by pretending that he was in a position to have a divorce matter dismissed. The court heard that Mathild was currently before the Georgetown High Court involved in a divorce matter and he was reportedly approached by Prince, who pretended to be a Police Officer and claimed that he could have the matter dismissed for $100,000. The Virtual Complainant allegedly paid $75,000 to Prince and promised to pay the difference later. Mathild later made inquiries about Prince and when he realised that he was scammed, he reported the matter to the Police. Prince was arrested during a sting operation. In court on Wednesday, Prince was released on $60,000 bail.The case will continue on June 19, 2019.
BY THE LOWER ROSSES MAYOR: Naomh Muire GAA Club honours – The great Bruce Springsteen song “We take care of our own” was what it was like last night as the Chairman made two inspired choices in Club Guest and Hall of Fame recipient at the Dinner Dance and Awards Night.BBC journalist Kevin Sharkey was the Club Guest and it was great to see Kevin back in full flow remembering days of the past but likewise looking at where it is all heading hopefully.Kevin was deeply involved in the Club as secretary in the early years and although his playing career was… lets say mixed….with Kevin himself jokingly referring to being called ashore in a match in Gweedore…Kevin always gave his all off the field and often took one for the team when other Clubs tried to, at times, scupper our existence. Great seeing you as a deserved Guest of Honour a Caoimhín. Jimmy Doherty was this years Hall of Fame winner and boy what a deserving man. This page is too short to outline Jimmy’s contribution both on the sideline as Bainisteoir and off it in developing the facilities on view today.Jimmy gave the Club his all taking us to Division one, Intermediate Champions, Senior Championship football and acted as Chairman and Club Uachtarán. A humble man who has achieved much in his life and it was great to see Jimmy on the stage last night receiving this great Honour. Although he has returned to the quieter game of golf “far from the madding crowd”…Jimmy is still around us in the oft heated GAA scene.Congratulations Jimmy Doherty and most richly deserved.Two great men belonging to a Great Club…..”we take care of our own” PICTURES BRID SWEENEY PICTURE SPECIAL: BBC’S KEVIN RETURNS TO HIS ROSSES ROOTS ON NIGHT OF CELEBRATION FOR NAOMH MHUIRE was last modified: February 3rd, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:PICTURE SPECIAL: BBC’S KEVIN RETURNS TO HIS ROSSES ROOTS ON NIGHT OF CELEBRATION FOR NAOMH MHUIRE read more
