A woman who allegedly stole from pensioners and a wheelchair user in a three-month crime spree has been refused bail.
Rita Miranda-Martin, 45, of Tullyvar Road in Aughnacloy is alleged to have targeted victims in Co Armagh, as well as other parts of Northern Ireland.
She is accused of stealing hundreds of pounds in cash and other belongings between July and September last year.
Police in Lurgan launched an investigation following the suspected thefts and fraud-related offences across the southern area region last year.
The court heard how purses and gift cards suspected of having been stolen were recovered during a search carried out at a house in September.
She faces 15 counts of theft and a further 13 fraud by false representation charges.
At the High Court in Belfast, the defendant’s counsel said she has already spent five months in custody.
However, the judge denied Miranda-Martin bail and described the police investigation as complex.
