Officers attended the area and a female - Georgette Mott - was arrested.

Georgette Mott, 29 of no fixed abode was charged with four counts of vehicle interference and two counts of theft from a motor vehicle.

She was remanded into police custody to appear before courts on November 25.

Having plead guilty to all offences Mott was handed a community order, ordered to pay court costs of £50 and compensation totaling £207.50 and released.

PC Lake from Leamington Spa Safer Neighbourhood Team said: "This was a great example of the policing teams working together to deal with an ongoing problem causing serious concern to the local community.

"However I am disappointed in the sentence handed down by the court which I feel will do little to reassure the community.

"I hope that this will act as a warning to Mott and encourage her to change her ways, however if it does not the team and I will not hesitate to take action again to put her back before the court at the earliest opportunity."
