Brit who stole from sick kids’ charities caught and jailed

A British man wanted in the UK after he absconded while on trial in connection with stealing 100,000 pounds (€113,000) of charity donations for ill children has been arrested in Paphos and extradited to England after more than three years on the run, it was reported on Friday.
According to Sheffield-based daily newspaper The Star, Glen Moore, 48, had absconded while on trial at Sheffield Crown Court in August 2014, and was sentenced to seven-and-a-half years in absentia.
He was arrested in Paphos on October 23 and flown back to the UK on November 2.
Moore, according to the newspaper, along with his spouse, who got four-and-a-half years, stole £121,000 from charities supporting needy children and babies, and used the money to fund a lavish lifestyle.
The couple held charity collections for legitimate children’s charities – including national baby charity Tommy’s – which funds research to save babies’ lives, the Star said.
Detectives had been searching for him in Cyprus and Lanzarote since 2015.
Moore was taken straight to prison in Doncaster to start his sentence.
