A WOMAN has been fined after stealing bottles of red wine from her local supermarket.
Angela Morris, of Highgate Avenue in Lepton, was before Kirklees magistrates yesterday.
She admitted the thefts on two dates from the Co-op store.
Vanessa Schofield, prosecuting, said that on September 24 it was reported that some wine had been taken from the store.
Morris was identified on CCTV and the same day was seen returning and stealing two more bottles of red wine. On October 14 the 43-year-old was back and again stole two bottles.
Mrs Schofield said: “In interview she said she had a lot on her mind and been depressed.
In a letter read out to the court Morris said that she had been going through a difficult period in her life. Her relationship of 15 years had broken down and her grandmother had died.
Morris said that she turned to alcohol as a result but was now seeking help.
She told the court: “I’m ashamed of my actions.”
Magistrates ordered her to pay £30 fine, £40 towards court costs, £18 compensation and a £15 victim surcharge.
