It’s back to prison for pram-pushing thief
AMUM who burgled a disabled pensioner’s home then fled, pushing her baby in a pram, has been sent back to prison for breaching licence conditions.
In March 2014, Kelly Tilley, now 34, left her child outside her 74-yearold victim’s house when she stole his wallet containing £550.
Liverpool Crown Court heard that the man had left the door of his home in Wavell Avenue open after returning home.
Andrew Sinker, prosecuting, said: “He went to the toilet and when he came out the defendant was standing in the hallway.
“He said, ‘What are you doing?’ She asked him for a drink and some money.
“He refused and told her to get out.”
The victim went into his bedroom and realised his wallet had gone.
Mr Sinker said: “He went out to speak to her but she was running off down the road. Due to mobility problems he was unable to chase after her.”
Police searched Tilley’s home and found the empty wallet.
She told officers that she and her victim were friends and claimed she only went into his house to ask for money.
She then claimed that he had agreed to lend her cash, but only if she performed a sexual favour for him.
Mr Sinker said the pensioner had saved the money to pay for household bills and was worried he would not be able to make the payments.
Tilley, of Salisbury Street, Southport, pleaded guilty to burglary on the day of her trial and admitted breaching bail conditions. She was sentenced to two years and 10 months in prison on March 18, 2015 and was released in August 2016.
On July 27 of this year, her licence was revoked after she failed to attend an appointment with her probation officer. She was arrested last Wednesday, August 30, shortly after 12pm at an address in Scarisbrick Avenue, and was taken back to prison.
