Woman stole more than £7,000 from her Carlisle employer

An "irresponsible" thief has admitted stealing more than £7,000 cash from her employer.

Patricia Anne Patterson, of Silverdale Road, Harraby, Carlisle, pleaded guilty to 19 charges of theft at Carlisle Magistrates’ Court.

The 41-year-old admitted taking £7,241.54 cash that belonged to Ryden, a property consultant company.

Patterson worked at the Carlisle Market Hall offices on Fisher Street as an administrator, collecting money from stall holders and tenants.

Her employers became suspicious in December 2012 due to irregularities, and they made a list of money missing.

Defending, Geoffrey Clapp said that Mrs Patterson had suffered emotional problems due to a previous failed marriage.

Patterson was committed to Carlisle Crown Court for sentencing on May 10.
