Warrant issued for woman who took a bus
A WARRANT has been issued for the arrest of a woman who failed to attend court to be sentenced for drink-driving.
Stefanie Lake had admitted taking a bus from outside its driver's home after a night of drinking.
An earlier court hearing was told how she had been boozing all night before hopping into the Mercedes Target Travel vehicle, which was briefly left unlocked and with the keys in its ignition, at 9.30am on May 17.
The 26-year-old briefly drove the vehicle around in Cheriton Close, West Park, before returning it, magistrates were told.

She was later found to have 78 micrograms of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35.
Lake was in the dock the following day, where she admitted drink-driving, driving without insurance and otherwise than in accordance with a licence.
Lake, of Honicknowle Lane, also pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine because she was found with a trace of the drug when arrested.
But she failed to show up at Plymouth Magistrates' Court to be sentenced for the offence earlier this week.
A spokesman confirmed the bench had ordered a warrant be issued for Lake's arrest.
If she is tracked down, she will not be bailed but be kept in custody until she is brought back to the dock, the spokesman added.
