A NEWBURY woman has been jailed for stealing from a “very vulnerable” victim.
In the dock at Reading Magistrates’ Court on Monday, April 3, was 27-year-old Emma Louise Alexander, of Skyllings.
She admitted stealing cash and bank cards worth £59 from a home in Westfield, Thatcham, on March 31.
Ms Alexander further admitted fraudulently using a stolen credit card to obtain approximately £47 worth of tobacco, alcohol and scratch cards at Oxford Road in Reading, also on March 31.
