A WOMAN has been charged with 50 counts of theft.

This follows the theft of products, worth an estimated £4,300, from two shops in Harlow between October last year and February.

As a result of ongoing investigation into these matters, a woman was arrested on Thursday 22 February.

Dawn Brooker, 39, of Hertford Road, Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, has been charged with 50 counts of theft and is due to appear at Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court this morning (Saturday 24 February).

Chief Inspector Paul Austin, Harlow district commander, said: “Thefts from shops have a detrimental effect on the businesses, their employers and members of the public and it’s something we take seriously.

“We will continue to work closely with our local shops and businesses to prevent shoplifting offences and investigate them thoroughly when they are reported.

“As in this case, it is apparent the reality in Essex is a substantial amount of the shop theft offences we deal with can be attributed attributed to a far smaller number of suspects.”

If they are not going to lock these people up they should have them tagged so that they set the alarm off when they leave any shop.
