Shaquan Caesar

Shaquan Caesar, 21, appeared before Georgetown Magistrate Leron Daly to answer to charges accusing him of forging a Guyana driver’s licence in the name of Anthony Jacobs, and uttering the document to Police Constable Collins on January 25, 2022 at Brickdam, Georgetown.
The accused pleaded not guilty to the charges, and was released on $200,000 bail. He is scheduled to return to court on March 4.
On the day in question, a Police rank was on motorcycle patrol when he observed Caesar driving a passenger minibus out of its designated route. The rank stopped the bus and asked Caesar to produce his licence and other documents.
Upon examining the driver’s licence at the Police station, the rank observed that it bore Caesar’s photograph but not his name. Further investigations were carried out, and it was revealed that Caesar had uttered a licence belonging to one Anthony Jacobs.
When told of the offence committed, Caesar told the Policeman that he had paid someone at the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) to insert his picture on the licence.
