A woman has been charged after a scam which conned well-meaning members of the public out of cash.
Between April and June a woman from Maidstone approached passers-by and claimed to be in distress.
It's alleged that the woman would tell people her bank cards had been stolen, or she needed a locksmith, duping people into giving her cash.
On Sunday, June 9, Kathleen Perry, 54, was arrested.
The Acorn Place resident was charged with two counts of fraud by false representation in Maidstone and possessing heroin.
She has been bailed to appear before Maidstone Magistrates' Court on July 12.
