Man Arrested For Writing Bad Checks

Insular Investigation Bureau detectives on St. Croix arrested 44-year-old Caliston Serrant on Dec. 13, for writing worthless checks to cover shipment of two vehicles.

Police were alerted to the fraud by employees at O’Neale’s Transport, Inc., who told police that Serrant had written them a check on Aug. 12, as payment for shipping two vehicles to the island: the check was in the amount of $2,820.

The check was returned due to the bank account being frozen, and detectives contacted Serrant in August and September regarding payment.

Serrant informed detectives both times that he would pay the debt by a deadline that detectives had set for him; however, he didn’t. As a result, Serrant was arrested at 10:15 a.m. and charged with drawing and delivering worthless checks.
