She is being questioned today.

Her face, along with 19 others, appeared in Thursday’s Ilford Recorder and on our website.

Two others also handed themselves in to police.

Craig Barrett, 23, of Knighton Road, Forest Gate, appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Thursday for failing to appear after being charged with theft from a vehicle. He will reappear on February 28.
