Devon Phillips, 29, of a St Mary address pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to defraud, forgery, possession of and conspiracy to utter forged documents and was offered $50,000 bail when he appeared before Senior Resident Magistrate, Judith Pusey.

According to reports, Phillips showed up at a JCF recruitment centre on May 24 this year, and submitted the fraudulent certificate in support of an application to enter the force.
