A woman from Stroud has been banned from asking strangers for money after defrauding several victims.

Molly Moxon, 37, was found guilt of nine fraud by misrepresentation offences and has been ordered to repay her victims.

A criminal behaviour order (CBO) now bans her from asking any strangers for money.

The order also states that she cannot knock on the doors of houses or businesses in order to ask for cash.

Police in Stroud say that the CBO is the result of thorough investigations by officers from the Stroud Neighbourhood Policing team and it’s important that it is upheld.
