Singh: Alleged con artist now wants bail

2012-08-25 00:00

ALLEGED con artist Charlene Singh (28) made another brief appearance in the Pietermarit-zburg Magistrate’s Court yesterday and indicated that she wanted to renew her bail application.

Singh previously withdrew her application for bail and told the court she was co-operating with investigators.

She faces several counts of theft arising from allegations that she conned her way into the homes of elderly people in Pietermaritzburg and stole goods from them.

She is also charged with escaping from custody by jumping out of the window of a police van after a recent court appearance.

Singh has applied for legal aid and her application is still being processed.

The case was postponed to September 10 for an attorney to be appointed for her.
