Kingston Woman Turns Herself in to Face Fraud Charges

A Kingston woman, 32, who allegedly defrauded her grandmother and threatened her mother has turned herself into police.

The Kingston Police Fraud Unit discovered back in July that nearly $13,000 had been transferred out of the victim's account by the accused, her granddaughter.

Police say in early January, the victim relied on the accused to help her with finances, but in June the accused stopped returning the victim's calls, and her whereabouts were unknown.

Last month, it's alleged that the woman threatened to slit her mom's throat when she was confronted by her at a local mall.

The victim fled to her vehicle and called police after the incident.

Since the accused whereabouts were still unknown, a second warrant was issued for her arrest.

On Tuesday, November 6,  the accused turned herself into police headquarters.

She's been charged with fraud over $5000, uttering threats, and breach of undertaking.
