British mother and daughter plead not guilty to fraud charges
A British mother and her teen-aged daughter have pleaded not guilty to fraud charges.
Thirty-eight-year-old Chantelle Mulrain and her 17-year-old daughter, made the plea during their appearance yesterday in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court.
They were arrested and charged by the police on Saturday.
A police statement said detectives attached to the Fraud Squad charged the two after they reportedly used a fake credit card while at a Kingston hotel.
It is alleged that on Wednesday, October 8, the women checked in at the hotel, spent two nights and benefited from meals amounting to US$1,600 using the forged credit card.
The police say it was at that time that the hotel manager discovered that the card was forged and alerted the police.
Mulrain and her daughter are to return to court next week Tuesday.
