‘Teflon with’ Charles Wold personifies the results of NY’s bail-reform law

If anyone personifies the consequences of New York’s bail-reform law, it’s this guy.

Charles Wold, 59, was dubbed the “Teflon con” after he told The Post in January how “grateful” he was that judges repeatedly released him from custody amid a three-month spree of burglaries in Manhattan and Brooklyn last year.

“I’m too old to go to jail, I’m way too old, I can’t do it,” claimed Wold, an admitted drug addict who has served four stints in prison.

Wold has more than 30 arrests, mostly for burglary and theft dating back to 1983, including 11 from 2021 alone.

He was busted back on Nov. 24 for a Manhattan break-in, but let out without bail the next day. He was then back at his alleged tricks of him on Nov. 28, when he was caught on surveillance breaking into a Brooklyn deli.

Wold has been arrested over 30 times in his long criminal career.
Within days, World was once again arrested for another burglary.
Wold was busted for a November Manhattan break-in, but let out without bail the next day.

Following yet another arrest on July 12 for other Manhattan break-ins, Wold was finally jailed on a $10,000 bail.

The move came after prosecutors convinced a judge it was the “least restrictive means” to ensure Wold returned to court after he twice failed to appear and repeatedly violated probation and parole.
