A WOMAN from Gwynedd has been jailed after she was found guilty of stealing a bank card which she then used to commit four counts of fraud.

Zara Williams, 39, of High Street, Porthmadog, was accused of stealing a bank card belonging to Lisa Milne in Porthmadog on January 27.

On the same day, Williams was also accused of using the bank card while intending to make gains for herself of £29.20 and £75.16 in Holyhead, £19.51 in Llangefni, and £6.90 in Caernarfon.

This totalled £130.77.

She was found guilty at Llandudno Magistrates’ Court on June 1.

Williams received a two-week concurrent prison sentence for the offences.

It was felt that only a custodial sentence could be justified due to the seriousness of the offences, which Williams, who had a previous record of offending, committed while she was subject to a post-sentence supervision.

She is also to pay a victim surcharge of £128 in full by September 4.
