First published in News by

A WOMAN who claimed she ‘forgot’ to return a purse, wallet and ring has admitted three counts of theft.

Kizzi Ann McMaster, pictured left, formerly of Hankinson Road, Bournemouth, said she found the items and forgot to restore them to their owners.

Police were tipped off by the 20-year-old’s housemate, who spotted the items in the defendant’s bedroom. Lisa Dytham, prosecuting, said: “She saw a purse, wallet and ring.

“She realised the purse belonged to their friend Zoe Ainsworth and the wallet to a male, Christopher Farr. She also saw a diamond ring that she thought didn’t belong to the defendant.”

In her initial police interview, McMaster said she had inherited the ring from her grandmother when she was two weeks old. She later admitted that she had found it in a box near her home and kept it in her room.

Todd Twine, mitigating, said: “She found the items, put them in her room to make enquiries, and then forgot about them.”

McMaster was sentenced to 60 hours of unpaid work, to be completed within 12 months, and was ordered to pay fines of £240 at Bournemouth Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.

These must be some of the town's lightest fingers....Echo 27th May 2014

A spot of 'previous'

My question is, if she was given a 2 year suspended sentence in May, how come the suspension was not lifted by the new conviction, and she isn't banged-up in jail for 2 years??

A nasty little thief it seems....




"A CARER who stole money from an elderly woman with dementia was caught on camera by a relative.

Kizzi Ann McMaster, 20, of Hankinson Road, Bournemouth admitted theft by taking cash from the purse of 82-year-old Frances Gilbert on several occasions between April 15 and May 3 this year while employed as a home carer by Bluebird Care in Bournemouth.

The magistrates imposed a two-month jail term, suspended for 18 months, and ordered that McMaster complete 220 hours of unpaid work and pay £90 compensation to her victim.

She was also ordered to pay £85 costs and an £80 victim surcharge."

I'd also genuinely like to know why the suspended sentence wasn't imposed. Anyone know the answer?
