A man will appear in crown court tomorrow (Friday) to face charges of defrauding businesses out of thousands of pounds.
Andrew Chatters, 38, stands accused of 16 counts of fraud, including against Ely-based building suppliers Jewson and Travis Perkins.
It is alleged that Chatters, of Main Street, Witchford, handed over cheques in the names of other people in an attempt to obtain thousands of pounds worth of goods and store credit.
It also alleged that, between February and March last year, Chatters used someone else’s credit card details to pay for the use of an executive box at Tottenham Hotspur Football Club – at a cost of more than £7,000.
Chatters also stands accused of a count of theft, whereby he is alleged to have stolen a Kubota truck worth £27,000 belonging to Newmarket Plant Hire.
