A thief has been given an opportunity to turn her life around with a 12 month community order and a Rehabilitation Activity Requirement.

Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard on December 5 how Stephanie Coggan, 29, of Brightmore Drive, Sheffield, stole laundry washing liquid from McColl’s, at Greendales Shopping Centre, in Dronfield.

Marianne Connally, prosecuting, said Coggan gave a false name to police before she was arrested following checks. Coggan admitted the McColl’s theft from July, obstructing a police officer and failing to surrender to custody in October, and to also stealing two coats from Go Outdoors In Wakefield in December. Kirsty Sargent, defending, said Coggan has personal difficulties. Magistrates also fined Coggan £10 and she must pay £90.28 compensation.
