A 35-year-old woman from Banbury was given to an Adult Restorative Disposal order (ARD) after a wheelchair was stolen from the town’s Wilkinsons store.

The incident took place at 3pm on Tuesday, February 17 when a group of people requested the use of the in-store wheelchair for a member of the group.

After completing their shopping, for which they paid, the group then stole the wheelchair.

The woman was given the ARD order on March 29 after coming forward following an appeal for information. The order required the woman to return the wheelchair to the store, which has now happened.
