It’s back to prison for pram-push­ing thief

Midweek Visiter - - News -

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.
