A 17 year old girl swindled a woman of N$500 after lying to her that her husband had been arrested.
The teen, who was scheduled to appear in court last week, did not show and is on the run from the police.
Available information indicate that on 16 November, the teen told Leonia Nghuhade that her husband had been arrested and that she had to pay N$500 bail to have him released.
Nghuhade gave the girl the money but she realised later that her husband had not been arrested and reported the con to the police.
Although the teenager got away with the N$500, the police tracked her down seven days later.
When the teenager, appeared in court for the first time, she was released into her mother’s care and told to return last week but failed to turn up.
The court immediately issued a warrant for her arrest, while her mother was warned to return to court on 17 February this year.
