Police investigating £10k theft from dying dementia patient seek help tracing woman who might be in east London

Police are appealing for help from people across the east of London to trace a woman suspected of stealing more than £10,000 from a dying dementia sufferer.

91-year-old Mary Banks was bedridden in Peterborough City Hospital in September when her purse was stolen.

Her card was then used to make fraudulent purchases, including groceries, clothing and cash withdrawals.

“My mother was 91-years-old, suffering from dementia, was immobile and had severe breathing problems when her purse was stolen as she lay in bed at Peterborough City Hospital,” said Jim Banks, Mary’s son. “She would have been completely unaware of where she was let alone that she was being robbed by a despicable and immoral individual who has preyed on the sick and vulnerable.

“She died within four weeks of being robbed. It defies belief that anybody could stoop so low and I am appealing for the public’s help in catching whoever is responsible so that no other family has to face a similar heartache.”

Investigators would like to speak to June Weatherman (pictured below) who is believed to be in east London.

Anybody who knows the 54-year-old’s whereabouts is asked to contact Cambridgeshire Police by dialing 101, quoting 35/36955/18.
