AN asylum seeker who stole £1,400 from vulnerable adults at a Birmingham care home where he worked and blew the money at a casino has been jailed for 26 weeks.

Funsho Olonilua got a job as a carer at Rathbones Care Home, in Erdington, after providing false details to an agency to hide previous convictions for dishonesty.

Olonilua, 42, of Hillside Road, Great Barr, was jailed yesterday after previously admitting charges of theft and fraud.

Judge Michael Cullum said: “This is a serious offence of theft of £1,390, effectively from eight extremely vulnerable individuals.”

Claire Harris, prosecuting at Birmingham Crown Court, said residents at Rathbones had severe learning difficulties.
