Coventry woman jailed after breaking into doctor's car and stealing his ID

Coventry Editorial 30th Apr, 2020

A COVENTRY woman who broke into a doctor’s car and stole his belongings last week has been jailed.

Sabrina Moustakim, of Hastings Road in Stoke, was captured on CCTV on Wednesday (April 22) stealing a bag containing a doctor’s bank cards and his NHS ID.

The key worker had popped into a local pharmacy on Harnall Lane just before 5pm and had returned to find his car had been broken into.

Moustakim was charged with theft from a motor vehicle and appeared before Coventry Magistrates Court yesterday (Wednesday), where she pleaded guilty and was handed an eight week sentence and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £128.

Det Insp Amar Patel from West Midlands Police CID, said: “It’s terrible to think that during this current Covid-19 crisis, some people are still seeking and taking opportunities to commit crime and cause unnecessary stress on people in what is already a difficult time.

“Stealing from anyone is bad enough, but to so brazenly break into a car during daylight hours that happened to belong to a NHS key worker is beyond words and I welcome this quick arrest, charge and sentencing of Moustakim.”
