A woman from Coventry who broke into a doctor’s car and stole his personal belongings has been sent to prison.
32-year-old Sabrina Moustakim, 32, of Hastings Road in Stoke, was caught on CCTV stealing a bag that contained the doctor’s bank cards as well as his NHS ID.
The theft occurred on Wednesday, 22nd April.
The doctor had popped into a pharmacy on Harnall Lane just before 17:00 hours, but when he returned to his vehicle, he found that it had been broken into and his personal belongings had been taken.
Moustakim was charged with theft from a motor vehicle and appeared before Coventry Magistrates Court yesterday (Wednesday 29th April).
She pleaded guilty and was handed an eight-week sentence and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £128.
Detective Inspector Amar Patel from the Force CID team said:
“It’s terrible to think that during this current Covid-19 crisis, some people are still seeking and taking opportunities to commit crime and cause unnecessary stress on people in what is already a difficult time.
“Stealing from anyone is bad enough, but to so brazenly break into a car during daylight hours that happened to belong to a NHS key worker is beyond words and I welcome this quick arrest, charge and sentencing of Moustakim.”
