A 35-year old resident of Green Street, St. George has had eight charges laid against her for stealing approximately $29,000 from an elderly person.
Kizzy Toussaint, a chef by profession, made her first court appearance last week Thursday (November 16) before Chief Magistrate Tamara Gill at the St. George’s No. 1 Magistrate’s Court.
Toussaint has been charged with four counts of stealing and four counts of money laundering.
The accused was granted bail in the sum of $20,000 for six of the offences and is due to re-appear before the Magistrate’s Court on January 30, 2018.
She was placed on $6000 bail with one surety for the remaining two charges and is to appear at the Grenville Magistrate’s Court on December 4 in connection with those.
THE NEW TODAY understands that between September 2nd, 2017 and October 4th, 2017, Toussaint stole the ATM card of one Lennie Degale with whom she was employed as an aide and drew the money from her bank account.
Toussaint allegedly took out the money on different occasions over a period and deposited the stolen money into her own bank account.
The suspect appeared without legal representation last Thursday before the Chief Magistrate but was assisted by Attorney-at-Law Peter David.
