David Balkaran, a 41-year-old security guard, has been charged with wasteful employment of police time, after he falsely reported a robbery to Chaguanas Police.
On November 10, Balkaran reported that he was robbed at gunpoint along Eleanor Street, Chaguanas, the previous day. Balkaran further reported that he was relieved of $500 cash, a pack
of cigarettes, one slice of watermelon, and a piece of bread pudding by an armed man of stocky build, dark brown in complexion with a goatee.
Officers of the Chaguanas Criminal Investigations Department (CID) conducted investigations into David Balkaran’s report. He later confessed to fabricating the entire incident.
