Fugitive Brenda Miguel arraigned in ‘sweetheart scam’

Fugitive Brenda Miguel arraigned in ‘sweetheart scam’

Allegedly ripped off 89-year-old West Orange man

A woman captured in Florida after being sought by the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice for three years, was arraigned in court in Newark Wednesday on charges that she and another woman conned an 89-year-old West Orange man out of approximately $164,900 by feigning romantic attachment to him and pretending they needed loans for fictitious business ventures.

Brenda "Girl Z'' Miguel, 48, who formerly lived in Newark, was arraigned by state Superior Court Judge Michael A. Petrolle on charges of conspiracy, theft by deception and money laundering, state Criminal Justice Director Stephen J. Taylor said. Miguel was charged in a June 20, 2007 state grand jury indictment.

The indictment also charged Susan "Chicken'' Frank, 46, formerly of Elizabeth, who remains a fugitive and whose last known location was Texas. Frank allegedly belongs to a group of transient con artists who prey on the elderly.
