The long-serving manager and head professional at the Cayman Islands Tennis Club has been charged with a string of offenses, including theft and forgery, in connection with funds allegedly stolen from the club.

Rob Seward was initially arrested in January and put on police bail as investigations continued.

He was formally charged Thursday with multiple counts of theft, forgery, obtaining property by deception, uttering a forged document, and converting, disguising or concealing proceeds of criminal conduct.

Mr. Seward, 46, is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
