An Eglwyswrw resident has been jailed after missing appointments while under a suspended sentence order for theft offences at Carmarthen last April.

Miss Sarah Prydderch-Jones appeared before Haverfordwest Magistrates’ Court on April 29 and admitted to failing to attend Thinking Skills Program and Unpaid Work appointments earlier this month.

The 39-year-old had been handed a suspended sentence by Llanelli Magistrates on May 4, 2023 following convictions for stealing alcohol and other items from Marks & Spencer; dog food and toys from Home Bargains; and alcohol and consumables from Aldi, all of which took place at Carmarthen on April 12, 2023.

The suspended sentences were implemented concurrently and Miss Prydderch-Jones was sent to prison for 16 weeks in total.
