Warrant issued for bogus Old Hill charity collector
1:56pm Tuesday 27th August 2013 in News
A WARRANT has been issued for the arrest of an Old Hill man who posed as a charity collector for Cancer Research to raise cash for himself.
David Armson of Wesley Court should have turned up to be sentenced by Recorder Graham Kelly at Wolverhampton Crown Court.
But the 23-year-old failed to make an appearance and an application from the prosecution for a warrant not backed for bail was granted.
Armson has admitted six charges of fraud by false representation when pretending to be a collector for Cancer Research.
He has also pleaded guilty to 2 charges involving the possession of false documentation - a driving licence and Cancer Research sponsorship forms.
The offences were all committed by Armson, a serial fraudster who has been convicted 67 times of pretending to collect money for charity, in the Brierley Hill, Merry Hill and Stourbridge areas.
Mr Bernard Porter who was due to defend Armson told the court he had not replied to correspondence and he had no explanation at all for his non-appearance.
