Woman who tried to burn down sister-in-law property among 16 charged

A woman who tried to burn down her sister-in-law’s property was among 16 people including two police officers and a juvenile charged with non-sexual offences in July.

The 31-year-old woman was charged with one attempt to commit arson, the juvenile – one count of aggravated burglary and one count of theft of assorted goods worth $6,640 whilst one of the police officers who was charged with the assault of his wife had his case withdrawn.

The officer aged 34 years was cleared after his 33-year-old wife admitted that the allegations were false. The second officer who is 49 years of age was charged with damaging property.

A man also in his late 40s who assaulted his 38-year-old wife was charged with three different counts including criminal intimidation. 

The other cases were related to acquiring others’ property either via fraud or aggravated robbery. In regards to the former, two men in their early 30s acquired close to $650,000 through falsified documents. They have been charged with one count of obtaining property by deception and one count of fraudulent falsification of account.

There were two other cases of aggravated robbery in which close to $11,000 in cash and assorted electronic items were stolen from two different heists involving a 51-year-old man who stole $7,600 from a cashier and two others 20-year-old and a 42-year-old who together stole assorted items worth $2963 from an electronic shop.

A 42-year-old man and a 43-year-old man were charged with aggravated burglary, however, it was withdrawn due to insufficient evidence.
