A HOMELESS woman has been in court after stealing cash from a man in Herefordshire.

Tracy Barrett entered guilty pleas to one count of theft from the person of another and one count of obstructing or resisting a constable in the execution of their duty.

The court heard from prosecutor Thomas Wickstead that the 49-year-old had stolen £387.57 from a person in Kington between December 13 and December 19 last year.

She also obstructed or resisted a constable in the execution of their duty on December 11, magistrates in Hereford were told at a hearing on June 5.


Barrett, who is of no fixed address, was remanded on conditional bail ahead of her sentencing on July 2.

She was ordered not to contact directly or indirectly the man she stole money from, apart from through solicitors.

A pre-sentence report will be prepared ahead of her sentencing at Hereford Magistrates’ Court next month.
