CCTV Captured Carer Stealing from Man, 71 (UK)

CCTV pictures captured carer stealing from man, 71, she was supposed to be helping
A care worker stole cash from a 71-year-old man she was supposed to be helping.
The victim's son became suspicious when it became apparent money was sometimes missing after Maxine Singh had visited his father's Wigston home.
The pensioner kept the cash in the pockets of a jacket hanging on a door.
And when his son installed a covert camera focusing on the jacket, it captured footage of Singh rummaging through the pockets and taking money.
Tara Kelly, prosecuting at Leicester Crown Court on Friday, said the pensioner had a variety of health problems and at the end of 2009 engaged the assistance of carers, arranged through social services with private company, Home Call.
She said Singh – who has previous convictions for theft and fraud and received a suspended jail sentence in 1989 – was one of the carers who regularly visited.
The son estimated about £600 was unaccounted for, but Singh claimed in interview she had taken about £100. The 51-year-old grandmother was charged only with the thefts that were captured on the son's CCTV camera.
Footage of Singh rummaging through the pockets and taking cash was shown in court.
