Carer caught stuffing money into her bra after stealing from an Alzheimer's sufferer

This is the moment a carer for an elderly woman with Alzheimer's Disease was caught on a hidden camera stuffing a stolen £10 note into her bra.

Sarah Leacy, who's 33 and from Putney, was secretly filmed stealing the money from her 90-year-old client, Monica Flanagan, earlier this year.

The victim's children had installed the small camera in their mother's home after they noticed money going missing from a secure cash box in the kitchen.

During her first police interview Leacy denied stealing the money, swearing on her 'nan and granddad's ashes' she had never taken cash out of the box.

When detectives told her she had been filmed she changed her story saying she took the money to buy items for the victim. She was found guilty of theft and received a community service order with court costs and fines totalling £700.
