TWO of three men who fraudulently obtained a number of Hyundai vehicles from a local car rental company last month have been ordered to collectively pay the firm over $4,000 in restitution.

Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt ordered Sean Roberts and Sean Bain to pay $2,700 and $1,950 respectively to Avis Rent-A-Car as compensation for their actions late last month.

The two were ordered to pay their respective amounts by April 4. Chief Magistrate Ferguson-Pratt previously said neither of them, including their co-accused Akeem Storr will be released until Avis Rent-A-Car is fully reimbursed.

Storr, meanwhile, had his sentencing adjourned to today.

Last week, Roberts and Storr admitted they fraudulently obtained a Hyundai Accent worth $400 from Avis Rent-A-Car near the British Colonial Hilton on February 15, and again fraudulently obtained another Hyundai Accent worth $900 from the same agency on February 27.

Roberts also pleaded guilty to fraudulently obtaining a Hyundai Accent worth $850 from Avis Rent-A-Car on February 17, and another Hyundai Accent worth $1,200 on February 25.

Bain and Storr also pleaded guilty to fraudulently obtaining both a Hyundai Accent worth $500 and a Hyundai Tucson worth $600 from Avis Rent-A-Car on February 17, and also admitted to fraudulently obtaining both a Hyundai Accent worth $900 and a Hyundai Tucson worth the same amount on the 20th of that month.

Bain and Storr also admitted to fraudulently obtaining a Hyundai Elantra worth $1,000 from Avis Rent-A-Car.
