Woodchurch man appears in court over alleged theft of £28,000 from his elderly mum
A WIRRAL man has appeared in court over the theft of more than £28,000 from his elderly mother.
Ian David Scott, of Ferry Brow Road, Woodchurch, was in the dock at Wirral magistrates court on Wednesday where he faced six charges of stealing a total of £28,340 from dementia sufferer Iris Doreen Scott.
The 46-year-old, who has a number of tattoos on his arms and neck, is accused of stealing the money at an address in Berkeley Court, Upton between November 23, 2011 and February 1 last year.
Scott is accused of taking £3,100 cash from his mother between April 1 and July 30, 2012.
He is also charged with stealing £8,200 and £9,050 between November 23, 2011 and March 30, 2012, and further amounts of £4,650 and £3,340.
The final charge relates to an unknown quantity of cash.
Magistrates heard a brief summary of the case from prosecutor Amanda Cullen but John Ballam, defending, said his client would not be indicating a plea at this stage in proceedings.
Chair of the bench Susan James committed the case to Liverpool Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing on October 8 after deeming it unsuitable for magistrates to deal with.
Scott was released on conditional bail until that date.
