Eileen Grimshaw had had to cope with the presence of Tony Stewart, Jason Grimshaw’s father in her house for several weeks after he broke his leg in a car accident in July 2003. Sick of being treated like a drudge and sponged off, Eileen finally lost patience and with Tony recovered, threw him out of the house. He called into the Street Cars office and spotted the sum of £700 cash in the drawer, representing the previous day’s takings, which Dev Alahan had left with Eileen to pass onto Steve McDonald to bank. Unable to resist temptation, he stole the money when Eileen was distracted. When the loss was discovered, Eileen realised who was responsible but Dev dismissed her story as being convenient and Eileen was arrested. Hearing her side of the story, Jason tracked his father down to the address he had given him where he would be staying and went there with half-brother Todd. After repeated knocking, aggressive Bill Wadkins answered the door and angrily claimed that he hadn’t seen Tony for months. Jason didn’t believe him though and refused to take no for an answer until a sheepish Tony came to the door. Jason spoke with him alone and Tony admitted to the theft, giving the money to his son to return to Dev and Steve.
