A WOMAN and her friends stole clothes from a budget clothing store, a court heard.
Natalie Dennison admitted stealing £59 worth of items from the New Street branch of Primark.
Dennison, of Wood Terrace in Primrose Hill, appeared before Kirklees magistrates yesterday.
Linda Fowler, prosecuting, said the theft took place on January 7.
Dennison, 32, entered the store with two other women.
Magistrates heard that the group brazenly attempted two thefts from the store the same day.
Mrs Fowler said: “One of the others removed her boots and put new ones on.
“They all left the store without any attempt to pay.
“A little while later they returned and selected some items of clothing.”
The prosecutor said that the clothes were placed in a plastic bag and again the women left.
However this time they were caught by security and the goods were recovered.
Mrs Fowler said: “She (Dennison) admitted the theft.
“She said she was with her friends and they had taken these items of clothing, which she was going to keep.”
Jonathan Slawinski, mitigating, said that Dennison had a long-standing issue with drink.
Magistrates adjourned her case so that she can be assessed for alcohol treatment.
Dennison will be sentenced on February 4.
