Women charged with plotting theft banned from Cumbria

Three women have been banned from Cumbria after appearing in court accused of plotting to steal from one of the county’s supermarkets.

Amanda Barnes, 41, Sharon Mottram, 44, and Justine Robinson, 34, were all charged following an investigation centred on the Kirkby Stephen Co-op.

They were all initially charged with stealing £36.18-worth of alcohol and £155.22-worth of alcohol and food – all on March 24.

But those charges were later replaced by one of conspiring together to steal goods worth £191.40.

At Carlisle Crown Court Mottram, of Azalea Terrace South, Sunderland, pleaded guilty to that charge.

She will be sentenced on Friday, November 22 after background reports are prepared.

The judge told her that all sentencing options, including prison, were still open.

Barnes, of Cork Street, Sunderland, and Robinson, of Athol Road, Sunderland, denied the same charge.

They will go on trial in the week of October 28.

All three women were remanded on bail on condition that they stay out of Cumbria until their next court appearance.
