Dr Charles Malcolm Alexander Grant, 50, and Carole-Anne Grant, 52, of “Eagle’s Nest”, Dairy Meadows, St James, Barbados, appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court in Barbados on 18 counts of theft of sums totalling over $562,725 from the Sandy Crest Medical Centre, Holetown, St James.

The offences are alleged to have occurred between November 2008 and January 2010 while Grant was managing director of the St James clinic.

Bail was posted at $250,000 each with a surety. The couple also had to surrender their travel documents.

The Grants attempted to shield their faces while en route to face the charges, and after the hearing before Magistrate Graveney Bannister, they left the court via a rear exit, away from news photographers waiting outside.

The couple will return to court on January 3 and 4, 2013. (Barbados Daily Nation )
