The two men accused of attempting to defraud a nursing centre are to return to court on December 16.

Yesterday, 48-year-old pest controller Norton Newman and 24-year-old Sheldon Daley appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.

Newman is charged with conspiracy to defraud and uttering forged document, while Daley is charged with conspiracy to defraud, two counts of obtaining money by forged documents and nine counts of obtaining money by false pretense.

Yesterday, the magistrate extended Daley’s bail, but Newman was remanded.

It is alleged that on October 29, Newman went to a bank on Hagley Park Road where he presented a cheque valued at $465,000 from the account of the Green Acres Nursing Centre.

The cheque was payable to an account belonging to Daley.

The bank later discovered that the cheque was forged and the police were called in.

It was also discovered that on different occasions, numerous attempts were made to lodge multiple forged cheques to Daley’s account.

However, Newman has denied knowledge of these incidents.
