THE case of a man accused of defrauding his grandfather out of more than £33,000 has been sent to crown court.

Joiner Luke Dennis Wilson, 26, of Merllyn Lane, Bagillt, appeared at Wrexham Magistrates Court on Friday.

Wilson is charged that between December 2011 and June 2012 he made false representation that he had legitimate access to the funds of Arnold Wilson to make himself a benefit of £23,500.

He is also charged with obtaining building materials to the value of £4,000 by making false representation that he had unfettered authority to use his grandfather’s trade account, as well as with obtaining £5,866.29 by falsely claiming he had consent to use his grandfather’s bank account.

The court heard his grandfather had since passed away due to cancer.

He also stands charged with failing to surrender bail at Mold Magistrates Court on November 11.

Wilson indicated no plea to all charges and will next appear before Mold Crown Court on Friday.

He was bailed with a condition to live at his father’s address at Merllyn Lane.
