Southern Telegraph - - Crime -

A woman who was found with a stolen credit card has had an­other month added to her jail sen­tence.

She ap­peared in Rock­ing­ham Mag­is­trate’s Court ear­lier this month and pleaded guilty to be­ing in pos­ses­sion of stolen or un­law­fully ob­tained prop­erty.

The court was told that at 3.25pm on Septem­ber 4 in Wel­lard, the woman was in a white Mercedes-Benz in a lo­cal shop­ping cen­tre carpark, when she was stopped by po­lice on a pa­trol.

She was found with a credit card that had been stolen from a post box in North Coogee, how­ever she said she did not steal it.

She was handed an ex­tra month sen­tence to her 13-month jail sen­tence, which she was served a day af­ter this par­tic­u­lar of­fence.
