Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard on Monday, February 12, how Angela Lane, 45, of Beighton Street, Ripley, stole £351.36 worth of groceries from Tesco Extra, on Lockoford Lane, Chesterfield, on December 21, as she left the store with a trolley of goods.
Lane’s trolley-dash theft was committed after she stole Gucci Guilty and Dolce and Gabbana fragrances valued at £243 from Boots, on Lower Pavement, in Chesterfield, on November 28, according to the court.
The defendant pleaded guilty to the two thefts from Boots and Tesco.
Lane stated that she had told police she had stolen the fragrances after she had suffered a drugs relapse and her defence solicitor John Last previously said that Lane has been struggling while under-going tests for cancer.
