A thief stole a children’s charity box – and used the cash to buy cocaine.

Emma Phillips, 34, of Hoyland Terrace, South Kirkby, ripped out the cardboard money container part of the charity box – which was collecting for the Great Ormond Street Hospital – at the South Kirkby Pharmacy, on Langthwaite Road, on December 20.

Phillips admitted theft from a shop at Wakefield and Pontefract Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, January 22.
