Carer stole staggering £47,000 from 97-year-old dementia sufferer

A CARER stole £47,000 from a 97-year-old dementia sufferer while paid to look after her.

Linda Truman used the woman’s card to withdraw cash over five years.

She splashed out on a Center Parcs holiday, takeaways and boosting her family’s lifestyle.

The victim’s daughter uncovered the fraud after her mother died in 2017.

Truman, 47, of Taunton, Somerset, who has a previous conviction for similar fraud, got a two-year suspended jail term at the town’s crown court.

She must also do 100 hours of unpaid work for the “despicable offence”.
