Staff member stole $133,000 from rebuild firm

March 3, 2017 | By More

A woman has admitted stealing $133,000 over two years, in amounts of a few thousand dollars at a time, from the Christchurch rebuild firm where she worked.

She was granted interim name suppression until her sentencing in the Christchurch District Court on May 10.

The Crown said the woman was employed in the main office as a receptionist and office administrator for a Christchurch company.

She was responsible for receiving cash payments from customers, but between November 2012 and January 2015 she deposited several large amounts of cash into her own bank account.

She pleaded guilty today to three representative charges of theft by a person in a special relationship.

Judge Neave remanded her on bail for sentencing, recommended a restorative justice meeting, and ordered a reparation report, and a pre-sentence report.
