Theresa Stratton caught on CCTV stealing from pensioner

A care worker was filmed stealing £130 from the wallet of a 74-year-old man at his home in Rustington, West Sussex.

Theresa Stratton, 39, of Dorset Close, Littlehampton, had denied theft, claiming she had been given permission to borrow the money from David Skerritt.

The theft was captured on CCTV installed by his family.

The footage, given to the BBC by Mr Skerritt's daughter, was checked by her after he said his wallet was empty.

Stratton will be sentenced at Chichester Crown Court on 10 March.
