Agent stole Christmas savings

A STRANRAER woman who stole money from Christmas savings catalogue customers has been ordered to repay the full amount to her victims.

Olwyn Pomroy, 34, of Birch Close, admitted taking more than £1600 from four customers of Parks Hampers, for whom she was an agent, between January and December 2011 to pay bills after falling into financial difficulty. She was also ordered to undertake 240 hours of unpaid work and was placed on supervision.
