Hungry woman stole ready meals from supermarket

A woman stole 20 chilled ready meals from a supermarket because she was hungry and had no money.

Lana Van Vuuren, 51, of Church Mews, Duke Street, Penrith, took the food from the Co-op store on the town's Burrowgate.

At North Cumbria Magistrates' Court today, she admitted carrying out the theft on November 18 last year. The meals were found in her fridge.

She told the court she took the food because she had no money and was hungry.

Magistrates fined her £73 and told her to pay £85 court costs and £20 victim surcharge. She must also pay £17.15 compensation to the Co-op.
