Woman accused of stealing $100,000 from seniors

A Southampton woman accused of stealing nearly $100,000 from an elderly couple this morning appeared in Magistrates' Court.

Barbara Tannock, 41, of Middle Road, faced ten counts of theft and two counts of money laundering, against Albertine and Vorhees Place. She was not required to enter a plea as her case must be dealt with by the Supreme Court.

Crown counsel Cindy Clarke said Ms Tannock stole repeatedly from the senior couple between August 2009 and January 10, 2010.

Ms Place, the surviving complainant, is now 84-years-old. The court heard that the total amount taken was $98,500.

Ms Tannock was also accused of attempting to convert the money to avoid prosecution on two separate occasions.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner ordered her to return to court on May 20. She was released on $10,000 bail.

Ms Tannock, represented by lawyer Larry Mussenden, was fined $215 on a separate speeding charge.
