This week’s award for the ‘Scum of the Week’ (Ã‚Â© 200weeks) goes to a Mr Mason from Bolton, who stole almost Ã‚Â£40,000 from his family to fund his crack & heroin habit.
The 34-year-old stole a savings account card from his 84-year-old grandfather withdrew almost 26 grand between October 2009 June this year.
He then stole his mother’s cash card & withdrew 13 grand.
The Halifax repaid the grandfather but Santander declined to refund the mother.
Mason was sentenced last week at Bolton Crown Court to a suspended 12 month prison sentence & drugs rehabilitation course after his mother told the court she did not wish to see her son jailed.
