Have your say

A MUM, who admitted 10 shop thefts and three motoring offences, had her case adjourned by Grantham magistrates while a full report is written about her.

Marion Selina Robertson, 30/06/83, stole from a range of shops including £459.60 of products from Pets at Home and perfume from Boots.

Robertson, who has a two-year-old daughter, moved out of her home into a refuge in December 2010.

Rory Macmillan, defending, said she accrued three months worth of rental arrears and has further debts of £4,000. She started taking drugs on top of her methadone and stealing to pay her debts. Robertson’s case was adjourned until May 11.
