A WORKINGTON woman has been given a community order after she stole products totalling more than £500 from two stores.

Anna Elizabeth Scott first faced a charge of stealing property to the value of £100 from Debenhams in Workington.

The second charge related to stealing goods from Boots in Workington valued at £411.50.

She admitted both offences.

Both thefts took place on July 23.

Scott, of Irving Street in Workington, appeared before Carlisle's magistrates' court last Thursday.

She also faced a charge of stealing products valued at £133.62 from the same Boots store.

This took place five days after the other two offences.

Scott, 38, was given a community order imposing an eight-week curfew on her requiring her to be at home between the hours of 8pm and 6am every day.

She was ordered to pay a total of £545.12 in compensation to the two shops.

The amount must be paid by August 20, the court heard.
