Two Police Officers charged for fraud over driver’s license exam fraud

Two members of the Guyana Police Force were today slapped with 38 charges of fraud committed during a Driver License Examination back in April of this year.

Both were granted bail.

31-year-old, Police Corporal, Shanice Fraser along with her fellow Police Corporal, 25-year-old, Ryan Grey stood before the Chief Magistrate and were both told they were not required to enter a plea.

The Court learnt that on the 12th August in Georgetown with the intent to defraud the public, the two conspired with person or persons to commit a misdemeanor by forging a total of 38 examination papers for persons who never wrote the driver’s license exams.

Grey is believed to have been responsible for 20 of those test papers while Fraser was also suspected of forging 18 of the said papers.

The Police Prosecutor, Gordon Mansfield, had no objections to bail but requested that conditions be applied to bail.

Bail was granted in the sum of $150,000 for Fraser while Grey was told his bail stands at $160,000.

The two have been ordered to return to Court next month for the continuation of the case.

Back in April, the Guyana Police Force launched an investigation after it was discovered that over 207 exam papers were handed in while only 61 persons wrote the exams.

155 papers carried the names of persons who never appeared to write the exams.

During the investigations, several Police ranks were questioned, however, Fraser and Grey are the first two to be charged. 

At least one other member of the Force is expected to face similar charges in the Court along with a civilian.
