Thursday, November 13, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: A woman accused of stealing from a woman more than twice her age was remanded without bail on theft charges.
33 year old Tiffany Lamb was charged with 21 counts of theft to which she pleaded not guilty. According to 73 year old Joyce Goff, she routinely asked the younger woman, whom she considered a friend, to withdraw money on her behalf with an ATM card. However, between October 24 and November 3, some $5,320 was taken from her Atlantic Bank account through the use of the ATM card, but without her permission.
Appearing before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer, Lamb said she considered the complainant like an aunt to her and she had business to take care of. But the prosecution convinced the magistrate that Lamb should not be offered bail due to the serious nature of the charges, the age of the complainant and the possibility of interference with prosecution witnesses.
Senior Magistrate Fraser upheld the objection and she remanded Lamb into custody until January 21, 2015.
