Ipswich woman ordered to pay £370 in compensation after stealing purse from Boots pharmacy counter
A 39-year-old woman has been ordered to pay hundreds of pounds in compensation after stealing an elderly woman's purse.
Terri Ann Spilling, of Kingfisher Avenue in Ipswich, was charged with theft after an incident in the town last year.
The victim, a woman in her 70s, left the purse on the pharmacy counter at Boots in Tavern Street at about 11.30am on Friday, September 3.
The purse was then taken and an amount of cash was removed.
After an investigation by the Operation Shere team, a woman was interviewed and later summonsed to court.
Spilling appeared at Ipswich Magistrates' Court on March 26, where she was charged with theft.
She was ordered to pay £370 in compensation.
