Cumbrian woman stole from garden centre where she worked

A woman with a previous conviction for stealing from the bank where she worked has admitted stealing from a garden centre while working there.

Pamela Rudd, 31, of Stone Crest, Warcop, was charged with stealing eggs and haylage – worth £42 – from Garden of Eden, near Calthwaite.

She pleaded not guilty at Carlisle magistrates and the case was sent for trial at Carlisle Crown Court. But when she appeared before the Honorary Recorder of Carlisle, Judge Paul Batty QC, yesterday she changed her plea to guilty.

The case was adjourned for pre sentence reports.

Rudd was allowed bail, but Judge Batty told her that did not mean she would not ultimately be given a custodial sentence.

He said her previous conviction for stealing from an employer eight years ago put a “different complexion” on the case.

Hate them. Goodness knows what they'll look like when these folks are 70

Pain for no gain. They're a passing fashion with risk
