A BOLSOVER man has been ordered to pay compensation after admitting his part in the theft of items from a clubber’s handbag.

CCTV showed the bag being taken from the DJ’s booth to a sofa in the Chesterfield club where it was searched.

“Charlotte Fulton took a mobile phone from the handbag and passed it to Daniel Vaughan who put it into his jeans pocket.

“A phone, make-up and cash was missing. A camera was later recovered,” Helen Griffiths, prosecuting, told Chesterfield magistrates.

Fulton (22) told police she was very drunk and recalled going into the DJ booth and playing with switches.

She alleged that Rebecca Cundy took the bag and tried to hand it to her, but she did not want it.

They looked through the bag and Fulton accepted she removed a camera, but later put it back.

Vaughan told police he was drunk and remembered litle about the evening, said Mrs Griffiths.

Vaughan (23) of Scarsdale Street, Carr Vale, and Fulton, of Ringwood Road, Brimington, admitted theft from Annelise Bell on 15th November.

Vaughan was fined £90 and Fulton £185. Each must pay £40 compensation, with £85 costs.

Cundy (23), of Kentmere House, Archdale Close, Birdholme, denied theft and will face a trial on 27th March.
