Two charged after doctor’s belongings stolen during Covid-19 crisis
We’ve charged two people after a doctor’s personal items were stolen outside a pharmacy in Coventry last week.
Officers were called to outside the pharmacy on Harnall Lane just before 5pm on Wednesday 22 April, where a key NHS worker had returned to his car to find that it had been broken into and his bag containing his bank cards and NHS ID had been stolen.
After reviewing CCTV, a 32-year-old woman was arrested yesterday (Tuesday 28 April) on suspicion of theft. Sabrina Moustakim, of Hastings Road in Stoke, was charged with theft from a motor vehicle and remanded into custody until her appearance at Coventry Magistrates Court today (Wednesday 29 April).
During investigations, an alleged accomplice who had been handed the cards was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods. Leoni Clare, of Birmingham Road in Coventry, was later charged with possession of an offensive weapon after a knife was found during her arrest. The 33-year-old was also due to appear at Coventry Magistrates Court today after being remanded into custody.
