Woman jailed after stealing money from an elderly couple.

Lisa Millard (45) of Field Rise, Littleover had been employed as a carer for an elderly couple for two years when her family became suspicious that she was stealing from them.

The family of the couple set up a camera in a bedroom which caught Millard taking tubes of £2 coins and replacing them with tubes filled with 2p coins.

Millard was arrested on May 28, 2014 but denied the charge; as a result of this the 86-year-old man that she cared for had to attend court to give evidence against her. On Thursday, January 8 she was sentenced at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates Court to 18 weeks in jail.
