Thief went on spate of sneak-in stealing across Dundee

A crook who targeted an elderly dementia sufferer and a couple living in a retirement flat during a spate of sneak-in thefts could be facing jail.

Stacey Rice carried out a string of crimes over the space of five days at addresses in the Hilltown area of Dundee.

In one she stole a box of medication belonging to an 89-year-old dementia sufferer.

In a second crime she was caught in the act rummaging through the bedroom of a couple aged 76 and 77 just feet away from where they were sleeping.

She made her escape – but days later was again found in a house rummaging through a bedroom.

This time the householder cornered her until police arrived – and a search of her and her home found items linked to four thefts she had committed within the previous five days.

Rice, 36, of Stirling Street, Dundee, pleaded guilty on indictment to three charges of theft committed between April 23-28 this year.

Sheriff Alastair Carmichael deferred sentence until September for social work background reports and remanded Rice in custody in the meantime.
