A HEROIN addict who spent two years stealing household goods and ripping off taxi drivers has been jailed for 15 months.

Sara Butler, 21, stole products from shops and took taxis without paying for them, Edinburgh Sheriff Court heard.

She began offending in April 2009 when she was addicted to the drug, and would steal goods to raise cash to pay for it.
