Woman in Stamford High Street stole money for petrol 'to visit dad in hospital'
A woman stole money from a Good Samaritan in Stamford High Street after saying she needed petrol to visit her dad in hospital.
The victim handed over £30 from a cash machine at 6.50pm on Thursday last week after being persuaded that the woman had run out of petrol on the way to hospital from Melton Mowbray and had got enough money to pay for fuel.
They also gave bank details for the money to be paid back.
