MONROVIA, August 17 (LINA) – The Monrovia City Court at the Temple of Justice has incarcerated at the Monrovia Central Prison three men for allegedly conspiring with a former employee of the Untied Bank for Africa (UBA) to steal US$30,000.
The writ of arrest issued by Magistrate Kennedy Peabody based upon a complaint filed by the UBA, commanded the court’s Magistrate Police, Captain Julius B. Swen or his deputy to arrest the living bodies of the four suspects.
The three suspects were on Wednesday arraigned before the court to answer to the charges of Theft of Property, Criminal Conspiracy and Criminal Facilitation levied against them, while the fourth suspect is still at-large.
According to the writ of arrest, the three men identified as Sam Bondo, Reynold Richardson and Joseph K. Flomo, committed that act July 11-13, 2016.
The writ said they purposely connived and conspired with a former employee of said bank, Ansah Boker, who is still at-large, to use the account of Jokoti Construction and Investment Inc. to steal the money.
The writ further indicated that the four men, through the aid of one of the suspects, Joseph K. Flomo, who is believed to be the Director of Jokoti Construction and Investment, allegedly used the company’s account to steal from the bank.
The writ pointed out that the suspects, out of deception and with the intent to steal from the UBA, manipulated the financial statement at the bank and withdrew, stole, and carried away the cash amount of US$30,000 and converted it into their personal use and benefit.
The Writ noted, among other things, that the alleged act of the four men being unlawful, wicked, illegal and intentional, is in violation of the New Penal Law of Liberia.
Meanwhile, the three suspects are currently detained at the Monrovia Central Prison awaiting Court trial, while defendant Boker is still at-large
