The Bristol Live website reports that twin sisters were persuaded to sell stolen goods online in order to fund drug addicts, raking in around £300,000 over a five year period.

Lillian Bowers’ son initially started to get his mum to sell stolen items to fund his drug addiction, and soon enlisted the help of her sister Helen Thomas.

It was reported that a local Toys R Us store noticed a spike in shoplifting and that stolen goods were being sold by the twins on eBay.

Police executed a search warrant at the twins’ homes and found 8,052 stolen items, some still bearing store tags.
