Court appearance over alleged £105k Culdrose runway fraud
11:10am Monday 30th December 2013 in News
A man has appeared before a court charged with fraud worth £105,000 involving indicator lights for RNAS Culdrose's runway.
Keith Andre Spicer, aged 39, of Great Beddow, Chelmsford, Essex, entered no plea at Truro's magistrates' court.
He was charged with fraud by supplying 28 precision approach path indicator lights to Debut Services (South West) for use on the refitted runway at RNAS Culdrose.
It is alleged that Spicer purported them to have been manufactured by Research Engineers of Australia when they had not been, intending to make a gain of £105,000 for himself and the company of which he was a director, in 2012.
His case was sent for trial at Truro Crown Court on January 17.
