A WINDOW cleaner is awaiting sentence after admitting stealing a pensioner’s car.
James Ramsden (35) was working in Wombwell last Wednesday morning (30) when he took a women’s brown Vauxhall Corsa from Lundhill Grove.
Ramsden, of Chesterfield Road in Sheffield, was identified by witnesses and charged by police.
He admitted burglary, disqualified driving and driving without insurance and will be sentenced later this month.
Det Sgt David Baker said: “I would first off like to thank the residents who spotted Ramsden as he returned to the scene of the crime, and called this in to us.
“They showed a great deal of community spirit and apprehended him while alerting police.
“Although I am pleased with the speed at which we were able to apprehend Ramsden, this has been a really upsetting incident for the woman involved and we have not yet been able to locate her car.
“The victim is 80 years old, and having a car allows her to maintain her independence.
“I am appealing for anyone who spots the Corsa, reg DL14 RHE, to report this to us; we’d really like to get it back to her.”
