Renata Szabo (32) of Chelverston Way, Westwood, was sentenced at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Thursday, October 10).

It follows a warning by officers in Peterborough for people to be vigilant when selling their vehicles privately after a spate of car thefts in the city where offenders showed an interest in purchasing a vehicle but did not return it after a test drive.

Szabo has also been disqualified from driving for two years.
