A man and woman were brought before Magistrate’s Court Friday to face over a dozen serious charges ranging from fraud to money laundering.
Travis Mackey, 36, of Faith Avenue was charged with a total of ten counts of falsification of accounts; two counts of stealing by reason of employment; and one count of laundering the proceeds of criminal conduct.
Mackey and co-accused Kenja King, 36, stood before Deputy Chief Magistrate Subusola Swain in a dark courtroom, as the South Street Complex was without power for some time.
The charges were read using cell phone lights.
Prosecutors alleged that between October 11th and November 10th 2017, Mackey stole over $115,000 while employed at Royal Bank Of Canada (RBC).
King, a resident of Sandilands Village, was also charged with one count of stealing by reason of employment; one count of laundering the proceeds of crime and one count of acquisition of proceeds of crime.
Prosecutors also alleged that between October 11th and November 8, 2017 while employed at RBC, King stole $56,205.71.
Mackey pleaded guilty to all counts and was ordered to pay thirteen thousand dollars today; one thousand dollars for each of the thirteen counts or spend two years in jail for each.
He also has 30 days to pay $61,588.97 or spend three years in jail.
Mackey was granted bail in the amount of $7,000.
King pleaded not guilty to all counts and was remanded to the Bahamas Department Of Corrections (BDOC) until July 3 for trial.
