Three people from The Meadows area of Nottingham have been arrested and charged after three elderly people had their purse stolen from their bags having been distracted.

The incidents happened between 1 July and 6 September 2018 at shops in the town centre, mainly in the early afternoon.

The victims, all aged between 85 and 92, then had their cards used to purchase goods.

Alina Iancu, 26, of Lamcote Grove was charged with conspiracy to steal and conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation. Anna-Marie Moiceanu, 25, of Lamcote Grove, was charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit fraud and three counts of fraud by false representation and Marius Ion, 27 also of Lamcote Grove, was charged with theft, conspiracy to steal and conspiracy to commit fraud

They are next due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court at a date yet to be set.
