police after she admitted her crime in her sleep. Antony Fort, 61, called the cops on his wife Ruth, 47, after she confessed to having stolen £7,200 from a wheelchair-bound woman she was meant to be looking after at a care home.

He had originally become suspicious after she splurged thousands during a family holiday to Mexico – but she dismissed his fears, the Daily Mirror reports.

Just four weeks later, he was awoken by his wife mumbling “about money” in her sleep, before finding the care home resident’s debit card in her purse.
