A 90-year-old woman who was a victim of theft by her carer has urged others in her position to speak up.
Speaking to us with her 45-year-old daughter Melanie, Mary Rose expressed the anger she felt after finding out her carer was stealing from her.
The pensioner was so hurt by the actions of a woman she thought she could trust that she wanted her caught red-handed.
On August 5, a planned police operation resulted in the arrest of the carer. She was charged with one count of theft covering the period July 12 to August 5, for £260.
She pleaded guilty to the theft and possession of amphetamine at the first hearing and was sentenced to 12 weeks in jail at Huntingdon Magistrates’ Court in March.
She was also given an indefinite restraining order preventing her from having any contact with her victim or to go to the street in Ramsey St Mary’s where Mary lives.
