Allegations surrounding the purchase of a property, from 1986 led to the arrest of attorney Herbert Grant by the Fraud Squad Unit of the Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Branch for forgery and conspiracy to defraud.
According to a report from police, the complainant allegedly contracted the services of attorney Herbert Grant when both the complainant and his father came to an agreement to purchase a particular property as tenants in common in Rio Nuevo, St Mary in 1986.
In 2016, the complainant discovered that his name was not listed on the land title and subsequently made a report to the fraud squad, which led to further investigations.
The investigations by the fraud squad revealed that the complainant’s signature along with the documents used for the purchase of the property (Instrument of Transfer) were all forged.
Police assigned to the Fraud Squad Unit of the Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Branch (C-TOC) then arrested and charged attorney Herbert Grant for the offences of issuing forged documents and conspiracy to defraud.
Attorney Herbert Grant has been offered bail with surety in the sum of $500,000 and is scheduled to appear at the St Andrew Parish Court (Criminal Division) at 10:00 am on Monday, June 26, 2017.
