Cumbrian woman denies series of thefts

A woman has appeared at Carlisle Crown Court accused of a series of thefts allegedly committed while she was running a holiday cottage cleaning company.

Pamela Greaves, 32, of Stonecrest, Warcop, was in the dock with her husband John Paul Greaves, 45, who faces associated charges of handling stolen goods.

She pleaded not guilty to three offences of theft. It was alleged that on October 21 she stole a Kindle Fire HD, worth £159, belonging to Jodi Lawrence; on October 25 stole a pair of earrings, worth £50, from Tabitha Wilson and on November 1 stole a make-up bag containing make-up, a watch, costume jewellery, a child’s pyjama set and a glove puppet, worth £50 in total, also from Tabitha Wilson.

She also denied dishonestly handling the Kindle Fire HD knowing it had been stolen.

John Paul Greaves pleaded not guilty to three charges of dishonestly handling the items said to have been stolen.

The couple were remanded on unconditional bail until the last week of May, when they will go on trial.
