Cumbrian woman with 103 previous convictions jailed for shoplifting

A woman from Carlisle has been jailed for stealing more than £400-worth of designer cosmetics.

Angela Rogers, 39, of Randall Street, Denton Holme, appeared before city magistrates from custody.

She pleaded guilty to the theft from Boots on English Street.

Diane Jackson, prosecuting, told the court how a security guard in the store saw Rogers put some Estee Lauder products into her bag. She left the store without paying for the items.

When arrested she was found to have £444 worth of cosmetics in her possession.

The court was told that Rogers had 103 previous convictions for a variety of criminal offences.

Carly Lancaster, defending, told the court that this had been an “unsophisticated and opportunistic theft on impulse.”

She said Rogers accepted it was a high value theft, and had taken only around six items of expensive brands for her own use.”

She was sentenced to 240 days in prison.

No. Patients deserve better. We're at risk so long as hospitals aren't good enough

I don't believe hospitals in Cumbria will ever achieve the excellence they've promised
