An Armagh woman accused of taking over £62,000 from a local waste company is to face the Crown Court later this year.
Tracy Carr appeared before Armagh Magistrates’ Court, sitting at Newry Courthouse on Tuesday, for the purposes of a preliminary enquiry (PE) – the legal process during which a case is referred to the higher court.
The 45-year-0ld is charged with fraud by abuse of position.
Between May 5, 2021 and September 22, 2022, the defendant is alleged, whilst occupying a position within Glenvale Waste Ltd, to have “dishonestly abused that position” by accessing company accounts and caused funds in the sum of £62,678.61 to be transferred to her personal bank account.
The defendant, who appeared in the court, made no objection to the holding of a preliminary enquiry.
The prosecution submitted that based on the papers before the court there was a prima facie case to answer.
The defence made no contrary submissions.
District Judge Anne Marshall, satisfied there was a prima facie case to answer, released the defendant on her own bail of £500, to appear at Newry Crown Court for arraignment on April 11.
