Husband Stole To Cover IVF Costs

According to the Derbyshire Times, a desperate husband stole goods from his employer’s work site to help cover the costs of his wife’s IVF treatment.

David Lenthall repeatedly stole tubes of Sikaflex 221 Automotive Sealant when he was being employed as a vehicle body builder by Abel Systems Ltd.

The company did not have strict records so it was difficult to pinpoint exactly how many tubes of sealant had been stolen, their exact value or the exact period of the offending, but when Lenthall was interviewed by police he admitted he had been operating alone, selling the tubes on via eBay for about 18 months because he was suffering with financial difficulties.

Lenthall’s wife had wanted to be a mother and the couple spent thousands of pounds on IVF treatment, which proved to be successful, and the couple now have children, but they had been struggling to pay for the costs of the treatment.
