A WOMAN caught in Cwmbran who shoplifted 905 designer handbags has been jailed for 18 months.
Jayne Rand, 48, of Clardon Lane, Swindon, stole 905 handbags and four purses from House of Fraser and various retail businesses, between December 2009 and December 2012.
Rand also admitted converting criminal assets from 838 handbags.
David Wooler, Crown Advocate for the Crown Prosecution Service Wales, praised Cwmbran staff who snared Jayne Rand, thanking "the eagle-eyed staff at the House of Fraser store in Cwmbran" who "finally brought her to justice".
He said that she is "an unusually prolific shoplifter, responsible for a very large number of thefts from stores around the country over a prolonged period. "
He added: “Through proceeds of crime legislation, we are now actively seeking to ensure that Jayne Rand is not able to retain any financial benefit from her criminality.”
