ST ANN, Jamaica – National Commercial Bank employee Khadene Thomas was granted bail in the sum of five million dollars when she appeared in the St Ann parish court on Thursday.

Thomas, who was charged with larceny and offences under the Cyber Crimes Act, first appeared in court on Friday, January 20 to answer to charges of defrauding a client.

It is alleged that the 36-year-old wealth advisor of NCB’s Ocho Rios branch, through unscrupulous means, took US $143,000 from a client who knew and trusted her.

St Ann’s Parish Court Judge, Larona Montague Williams, had denied Thomas’ bail application that was made by her attorney Matthew Hyatt after receiving information from investigating officers that Thomas may have also defrauded three additional clients.

Montague Williams said that an additional two weeks would have given investigators time to probe the new allegations.
