Trial gets under way of woman who allegedly stole cash from her mum
An Ipswich woman stole her mother’s bank card and used it to make cash withdrawals and payments totalling more than £300, it has been alleged.
Mother-of- three Charmaine Dockery allegedly stole the HSBC card from her mother Rona Dockery’s handbag, which had been left in a locked car while they were enjoying a family day out in Hemsby, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
When challenged about the missing bank card and money by her parents, Dockery denied being responsible but allegedly said she would repay the money if they thought she’d taken it.
Dockery, 37, of Devonshire Road, Ipswich, has denied theft of an HSBC bankcard belonging to Rona Dockery on October 9, 2015.
She has also denied fraud by pretending she was her mother when she went to the Three Mobile Store in Bury St Edmunds to get a phone upgrade on October 21, 2015.
