Woman accused of holding stolen money

A woman appeared in Magistrates' Court accused of possession of more than $30,000 in stolen money.

Shirley Pearman, 56, was charged on Tuesday with two counts of agreeing to hold on to the proceeds of criminal conduct by another.

Ms Pearman, of Southampton, was also charged with two counts of receiving stolen money and one count of failure to cancel a money transfer that she knew did not belong to her.

The offences were alleged to have happened between an unknown date and March 9, 2016.

Ms Pearman did not enter a plea as the case must be heard in the Supreme Court.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo released Ms Pearman on $10,000 bail and adjourned the case until August 3.
