Two women jailed after stolen items found in Nottingham flat

Two women have been jailed after police found stolen goods when they searched a home.

Officers discovered a rucksack which had been taken from a parked van inside Lillian Caddis and Danielle Thomas’ flat in Basford.

They also seized a number of items of clothing the pair were seen to be wearing when carrying out fraudulent transactions with two bank cards which had been stolen in a burglary.

The break-in took place at a home in North Sherwood Street, Nottingham, on 10 June 2023.

When detectives studied CCTV footage they were able to identify Caddis and Thomas using the bank cards to make transactions at shops in the area.

The van was broken into two days later in Tennyson Street, Arboretum, when the owner disturbed two people acting suspiciously nearby.

He later discovered the rucksack, which contained a number of items, had been stolen.

Caddis, aged 41, and 45-year-old Thomas, of Basford, were each jailed for eight months when they appeared at Nottingham Crown Court for sentencing on Friday (16 February).

Caddis had earlier pleaded guilty to three counts of fraud by false representation and one of handling stolen goods.

Thomas pleaded guilty to four counts of fraud by false representation and one of receiving stolen goods.

Detective Constable Natalia Montano, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“We take incidents of this nature extremely seriously because of the impact they can have on victims.

“No one deserves to have their personal belongings ransacked and taken by intruders.

“The fraudulent use of bank cards can cause victims huge amounts of concern and stress as their hard-earned cash is spent by criminals like Thomas and Caddis.”
