A TEENAGE girl smashed up car windows and stole from vehicles left at Manchester Airport.
Cody Farrimond, 18, caused damage to a Range Rover and Jaguar parked in the car park.
She stole what she could from inside the cars, including a pair of Dior designer sunglasses worth PS250.
Manchester magistrates court heard how the teen targeted the cars on June 23 and June 24 last year.
One of the complainants, Julian Haycock, left his Range Rover in the Terminal 1 longstay car during his holiday.
Prosecutor Andrew Hey said Mr Haycock returned to see his car had been smashed into.
"The front-passenger window had been smashed. A first-aid bag inside the car had been rummaged through and some handsanitiser was taken", Mr Hey said. "The seat inside the car was covered in blood. Samples were taken and DNA showed it to be this defendant's."
In a statement, Mr Haycock said the incident caused him a 'massive inconvenience.' .' The second complainant, David Jones, left his Jaguar in the same car park.
"He returned to see it had a smashed window and a door was dinted", the prosecutor said. Some Dior glasses worth PS250 were stolen along with PS10 in cash.
Farrimond's defence lawyer, David Philpott, said that she was 'leading a chaotic lifestyle' at the time.
He said she had moved away from the Manchester area and is now living with her father in Bradford.
Farrimond admitted two charges of theft from a motor vehicle.
Magistrates handed her an PS80 fine.
She also has to pay compensation to the complainants totalling PS660.
The teen was handed a criminal behaviour order preventing her from entering Manchester Airport or any airport car parks unless she has a travel ticket for herself.
