A 23-year-old woman stole more than £1,000 from the tills of an Ely supermarket where she worked, magistrates in Cambridge were told.
Between October 1 and November 18 last year, Councillor Hannah Poole, of Green Lane, Christchurch, stole between £1,700 and £2,200 from a till at Sainsbury’s, in Lisle Lane.
Magistrates heard that the supermarket had been unable to determine exactly how much had been taken.
Appearing at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court on December 30, Poole, a Christchurch parish councillor, pleaded guilty to a charge of theft by employee.
She also pleaded guilty to a second charge of possessing a Class B drug after being found with 0.72 grams of MDMA on November 17 last year, in Wisbech.
