Housewife who stole 900 designer handbags in three
Jayne Rand (left), 49, of Purton, Wiltshire, stole luxury leather handbags over her shoulder from department stores to fund her lavish lifestyle.
Police believe the housewife is Britain’s biggest designer-label handbag thief - stealing almost one a day from 2009 to 2012 around the UK (right). She targeted brands such as Gucci, Radley and Ted Baker, to sell them on eBay. Rand started stealing after the property business she ran with her husband got into financial difficulty.
