AN ELDERLY Solihull couple’s cleaner has been warned that ‘custody is likely’ after a judge heard that she stole more than £3,000 from them.
Tara Loveridge (24) of Lydon Road, Solihull, pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to stealing a total of £3,201.94 from the husband.
The court heard that she stole the money over a period of just two weeks between the end of October and November 13 last year.
Loveridge was working as a cleaner for the couple at their Solihull home and stole from their bank account after taking the man’s bank card and a piece of paper with his pin number on it from his wallet.
At the request of her barrister Tom Schofield, the case was adjourned for a pre-sentence report to be prepared on Loveridge.
She was granted bail by Recorder Peter Cooke, who commented that her victims were an elderly couple.
And he warned Loveridge: “I don’t want you to be under any illusions. When you steal more than £3,000 from an elderly couple you have a duty to look out for, custody is likely.”
