Salterbeck woman jailed for spate of crimes

Carlisle Crown Court

[A] WOMAN who defrauded one man and stole £20 cash from another has been sent to prison.

Hannah Louise Hardy, 28, was said to have pinched a bank card from the wallet of one of her victims which she then used to buy a £5 scratch card. Hardy also stole £20 cash from the other male, and contacted him in breach of a restraining order she was given for previous offending.

At Carlisle Crown Court today (MON). Hardy admitted possessing a bladed article – said to have been a pair of scissors – following an incident in Whitehaven’s Scotch Street on June 26. At an earlier court hearing, she pleaded guilty to two thefts, fraud and flouting the restraining order.

Judge James Adkin heard Hardy, of Poole Road, Salterbeck, had a “chaotic, drug-induced lifestyle”. Jailing her for eight months, Judge Adkin said: “You should seek whatever help is offered to you during the time to stay away from class A drugs.”
