Suffolk: Hairdresser Sentenced After Fake Car-Jacking

A hairdresser who lied about a Porsche being stolen in a car-jacking on the A140 has been sentenced.

A 34-year-old hairdresser who lied about a £54,000 Porsche being stolen has today, Thursday 8 March been given a five-month jail sentence suspended for 12 months and a six-month supervision order at Ipswich Crown Court.

Katy Littleboy from Fleetwood Avenue, Westcliff-on-Sea, near Southend contacted Suffolk Police on Tuesday 2 November 2010 stating she had been the victim of a robbery on the A140 at Stoke Ash and her Porsche Boxter car was stolen.

Katy Littleboy entered a guilty plea at court last month, admitting fraud by false representation in November 2010 to Aviva Insurance that a Porsche had been stolen when in fact it had not, fraud by falsely representing to Porsche Financial Service between May and June 2010 that she was Laura Littleboy, fraud in September 2010 by falsely representing that she was Laura Littleboy and possession of false identity documents ? a UK driving licence.

Following sentencing today at Ipswich Crown Court, Detective Constable Ben Clark who investigated the case said: ?At the time when the robbery was reported to us, there was significant publicity which caused fear and concern in local communities. Robberies of this nature very rarely happen in Suffolk and we are pleased that following a full investigation, we were able to prove that the robbery never happened.

?I would like to take this opportunity to thank local people who contacted us following the robbery allegation with information which assisted us with the investigation.?
