A 65-year-old Penal man faced a Siparia magistrate on Wednesday charged with uttering a forged document with intent to deceive.
The magistrate granted $25,000 bail to the accused, Winston Thomas, a release from police said on Thursday.
Police said Penal police responded to a report of an accident near Joglo Supermarket, Penal, on Saturday. When they asked him to present his documents, Thomas gave them an insurance certificate.
On closer inspection, the officers became suspicious. When they checked with the insurance company, the document was said to be false.
Thomas is scheduled to reappear in court on January 12.
