Fife carer stole jewellery and gambled £5000 on victim’s bank card
A carer gambled over £5000 on a debit card belonging to the woman she was supposed to be looking after.
Joan Mitchell also stole jewellery from the victim.
As a result, 54-year-old Mitchell, of Foot Place, Rosyth, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.
She admitted that between 24th April and 5th May, being the carer to a female who was unable to tend to herself, she presented a debit card in the woman’s name to online gambling sites, 32 Red, Bet Victor, Betway, Ladbrokes, Jackpot Joy, Pink Casino and Gala Interactive, pretended she was the owner of the card and obtained betting services of £5180 by fraud.
Mitchell also admitted that between 13th March and 13th May at an address in Rosyth she stole jewellery from the woman.
Sheriff Charles MacNair called for reports and Mitchell will be sentenced on 13th November.
