Suspended jail term for carer who stole from 100-year-old

A carer who stole a gold bracelet from a 100-year-old has been given a suspended jail sentence.

Elaine Wood, 55, of Manica Crescent, Fazakerley, was given a three-month term suspended for nine months at Sefton Magistrates' Court.

She was also given a nine-month supervision order, placed under a curfew for eight weeks and ordered to attend a women's turnaround project.

The theft happened at the centenarian's home in Aigburth in March.

Wood was not the woman's regular carer and took the bracelet during a one-off visit.

The 100-year-old noticed the bracelet was missing the next day and told her usual carer.

A spokeswomen for MerseyCare Julie Anne (MCJA) said Wood no longer worked for them.
