(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) – A WOMAN who stole $67,000 from her 85-year-old grandmother is expected to be sentenced for the crimes next week.

It took Siparia Magistrate Margaret Alert almost an hour yesterday to read the 31 charges against Rhonda Mitchell, 28, of Siparia.

She faced seven offences of money laundering and 24 charges for fraudulent use of an automatic banking machine.

The charges were laid by Fraud Squad Constable Kissoonsingh.

Police prosecutor Sgt Starr Jacob told the court that Mary Mitchell noticed $67,000 missing from her bank account.

She obtained documents from the bank showing transactions which were unknown to her.

A report was made to the police who made enquiries and received video footage from 18 automatic banking machines of Rhonda Mitchell using the bank card.

Mitchell used $28,000 to purchase several items. After she was arrested and shown the footage, she confessed to the crimes.

Alert adjourned the matters to December 4, when Mitchell is expected to be sentenced.
