The police have arrested two British nationals, a mother and her teen-aged daughter, on fraud charges.



Thirty-eight-year-old Chantelle Mulrain and her 17-year-old daughter were arrested and charged on Saturday.



A police statement said detectives attached to the Fraud Squad charged the two after they reportedly used a forged credit card while at a 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$1,600.00, 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.



The two are to appear before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court tomorrow.
