Policewoman steals Credit Card, Goes on £6,000 Holiday To Dubai
A Cumbrian police officer, Natalie Scott, 36, stole a credit card from her mother’s partner to pay for a ten-day holiday for four people to Dubai but was arrested two days after returning from her trip.
The prosecution told North Cumbria Magistrates’ Court how the credit card was stolen: ‘While on duty in full police uniform she has stolen her mother’s partner’s credit card.
‘She said she saw the credit card by the door. She picked up the card and put it in her pocket and left the house.’
In court, the former police officer of 15 years, admitted theft and fraud by false representation.
She was given a suspended sentence of eight weeks, 200 hours of unpaid work, pay £5,996 in compensation and £85 in court costs.
