A prolific thief who continued stealing just two days after receiving a suspended prison sentence has been jailed.
Victoria Routledge, of Cardiff Road in Luton, stole £1,770.50 worth of cosmetics from Boots in Royston on June 13 – two days after getting a suspended sentence for a string of seven similar thefts in Letchworth and Royston.
The 47-year-old – whose aliases include Sarah Hill, Caroline Kennedy and Sam Richards – admitted the June 13 offence and a theft of fungal foot cream from Royston’s Lloyds chemist on June 4 when she appeared at Hatfield Remand Court on Tuesday.
Chairman of the bench David Tabraham-Palmer jailed her for 30 weeks, citing the very recent suspended sentence order. He laso ordered her to pay a total of £659.98 in compensation.
