Ex-South Yorkshire Police worker admits £275,000 theft
A former South Yorkshire Police worker is facing jail after she pleaded guilty to stealing more than £275,000 from the force and her mother.
Jacqueline Fletcher, 48, stole £116,500 from the sale of her mother's house and pocketed a further £63,500 in benefits.
She also admitted stealing £95,800 while working as a property store team leader at Attercliffe Police Station in Sheffield.
Fletcher, of Boundary Walk, Rotherham, will be sentenced on 9 August.
Sheffield Crown Court heard the offences took place between November 2011 and July 2016.
Granting Fletcher bail ahead of sentencing, Judge Rachel Harrison said: "Get yourself ready, I'm afraid the sentence is very likely to be immediate custody."
Fletcher left the force in 2015.
