Former Cumbria Police officer sentenced for fraud and theft

A former Cumbria Police officer has been given a suspended jail sentence after admitting fraud and theft.

Natalie Scott, 36, from Barrow, was arrested at her home in May after stealing a credit card and using it to pay for a holiday, the court heard.

The Cumbria Police constable was suspended from duty and has since lost her job.

She was given an eight-week jail sentence, suspended for one year, at North Cumbria Magistrates' Court.

She was also ordered to carry out 120 hours of unpaid community work and pay court costs of nearly £6,000.
