A Corby woman who has been charged with stealing from shops across the town is wanted by the courts after she failed to appear before magistrates.

Paula McKenna was due before Northampton Magistrates' Court on February 18 to answer 13 charges of stealing items including meat, clothes, toothbrushes, a dash-cam, alcohol, lego, an iron, candles and washing powder. She didn't turn up and magistrates issued a warrant for her arrest.

It is alleged she committed the offences between November 2019 and October 2020 at shops including Morrisons, Co-Op, Matalan, BP Fourways, and Tesco Extra.

McKenna, 32, of Plumpton Court, is also accused of a public order offence in Co-Op in January last year, and of being in breach of a conditional discharge imposed by Nottingham Magistrates in March 2020 after allegedly committing additional offences within a 24-month period.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of McKenna should phone police on 101.
