Another entry in my Scum of the Week awards appeared in the mirror in glorious technicolor captured on a police-fitted CCTV system.
Unusually, this week’s Pondlife is a female. Step forward 37-year-old druggie Claire Taylor. She befriended 90-year-old dementia sufferer Margarete Kileen in Hampshire &√ā¬† used to scrounge cash from her for drugs. When Mrs Kileen’s daughter found out she put a stop to it informed police who installed a camera at the lady’s home.
Taylor was captured on video breaking in & threatening the 90-year-old, who was dressed in only a towel, with a knife before stealing√ā¬† jewellery√ā¬† & cash & tying her victim to a wardrobe.
She was jailed for an indeterminate sentence at Portsmouth Crown Court this week &√ā¬† must serve at least three years 265 days.
