It’s been revealed that a missing woman with links to Rhyl and Holywell has been jailed for theft and assault.
Staffordshire Police launched an appeal this week for the whereabouts of Charlene Follett after she disappeared from Hanley last month.
The 30 year-old from Stoke was found by North Wales Police on Wednesday, having been reportedly sighted in Rhyl on New Year’s Day.
But it’s now emerged that Follett was facing charges of stealing washing powder and punching a supermarket securty guard in September. She also stole a tablet from a police car following an arrest in November.
North Staffordshire Justice Centre in Newcastle under Lyme heard the charges meant Follett was in breach of a conditional discharge for shoplifting and a suspended sentence for public disorder. She pleaded guilty to the offences.
The defence heard Follett was vulnerable and had been left in a bad way since losing two close friends to drug overdoses in recent times.
Follett was jailed for sixteen weeks and ordered to pay £115 in costs.
