Neighbour Emptied Over £32K From Elderly Friend's Bank Accounts.

Christopher Briggs
A thief, who helped himself to over £32,000 from two bank accounts of a 90 year-old neighbour he was apparently helping, admitted the offences today.

Christopher Briggs, 57, of Nugent Road, South Norwood had control over the accounts as somebody trusted to look after the pensioner's financial affairs.

He pleaded guilty at Croydon Crown Court to stealing £21,396 between August 1, 2010 and December 10, 2013 from a Nat West account belonging to Kenneth Nash.

He also admitted stealing £11,000 between September 1, 2011 and December 1, 2013 from Mr. Nash's Santander account.

Briggs was bailed to return for sentencing on February 11.
