A landlord accused of running a rental scam in Gander has pleaded guilty to a series of fraud charges.

Darlene Wheeler, 48, entered the pleas at provincial court in St. John's earlier this month.

According to court documents, she pleaded guilty to six counts of fraud under $5,000, in relation to offences that occurred in Gander in 2014.

As CBC Investigates reported three years ago, Wheeler left behind a trail of unhappy tenants and apartment hunters in the central Newfoundland town.

Tenants accused Wheeler of renting space in a home on Melville Place that she didn't actually own — something she acknowledged doing at the time.

But Wheeler dismissed complaints from past tenants, insisting that a lot of their concerns were made up.

The RCMP laid charges soon after. Now, Wheeler has pleaded guilty to fraud.

According to court documents, one of the victims is a former tenant who spoke to CBC three years ago.

Wheeler also pleaded guilty to two other counts of fraud, for passing bad cheques in Bishop's Falls back in 2010.

Wheeler is due back in court in September for a pre-sentencing report.
