A 32-year-old woman from Kingston surrendered to the police on accusations she defrauded her grandmother $13,000 and then threatened to cut her mother’ throat.
The grandmother called her granddaughter in January, asking her for financial management help. However, the granddaughter stopped returning her calls and was later nowhere to be seen.
In July, the grandmother reported fraudulent transactions from her bank accounts. In October, the mother of the suspect found her daughter, who was then wanted for fraud, at a shopping mall. She was met with explicit death threats by her daughter and fled to her car in order to call the police.
A second warrant was issued for her arrest but the woman appeared at the police station Wednesday. She was arrested and is set to appear in court on charges of fraud over $5,000, uttering threats and breach of undertaking.
