Camera captures carer stealing money from pensioner

Sharon Furner

Shocking images have been released of a carer from Colchester stealing money from an 89 year old patient with Alzheimer's Disease.

The footage, captured on a hidden camera in the victim's home, shows Sharon Furner dipping into the woman's handbag and pulling out the cash.

Police in Essex have released the pictures following Furner's conviction and sentencing at Ipswich Crown Court.

Sharon Furner, who's 49 and from Dilbridge Road West in Colchester, denied two counts of theft during a trial but was found guilty at Ipswich Crown Court last month.

This week she was given an 18-week jail term suspended for two years, fined £300 and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £80.
