Well known Guyanese comedian, radio and tv personality Andrew Dick was arrested in Cole Bay across from the Harley Davidson Store. According to the police, he was arrested without incident, and confessed to the embezzlement of the money.
According to sources Andrew Dick embezzled over $60.000 dollars from his new employers B&C Beverages. Mr Dick was fired from Obersi approximately 4 months ago, but there are no reports as to whether Obersi suffered the same fate as B&C Beverages.
Mr Dick has a history of embezzlement, and was fired from PJD2, “The Voice of St Maarten” for embezzlement. According to PJD2 sources, The check had been written out to $3500.00 but had not been fully endorsed, the check was payment to a garage. According to sources, Mr Dick could not resist the temptation, stole the check and had a friend endorse it and cash it at the bank. When PJD2 staff caught on, charges were filed and the accomplice Dick used to endorse the check confessed. At that time he was at a GOVERNMENT BUILDING PRESS BRIEFING when he was ARRESTED and walked out to the police station. Since then however Sarah Wescot Williams have had no problem letting this criminal back into the government building.
The Management of PJD2 agreed not to press charges, in exchange for Mr Dick signing a letter of intention to pay back the money he had stolen. According to PJD2, he never did pay back the account.
There are questions now about his other employer Obersi, Dick was fired from Obersi a few months ago, part of the reason was because Mr Dick was portraying locals as monkeys on his TV show. Certain people, who are not public figures but were lampooned by Dick on his show, complained to Obersi, who fired him due to conflicts of interested. It would be interesting if they went through their books now, since there has been an obvious pattern of embezzlement and theft over the years.

He conducts spot checks and audits, he realized that the invoices were inconsistent.
Martinez confronted Dick who admitted on the spot that not only had he embezzled the money, but that it was already spent.
