POWYS, WALES – A 19 year old woman working in a store in Four Crosses stole over £1.2k of scratch cards and winnings  on two seperate occasions.  The woman, named as Beverley Jayne Price pleaded guilty to the offence.

Ms Price had been caught on CCTV by her employer in the act of stealing both scratch cards and winnings.

On March 29, 2011, Price took £532 worth of scratchcards and £209 worth or winnings, and on April 2 had taken £306 worth of scratchcards and £164 worth of winnings.

The owner of the store where she worked said that he had run his business on the trust of his employees.

Huw Williams, mitigating, said that Price was of good character and that because the offence took place over just a few days “it was clearly unorganised, crude and unsophisticated”.

He said that Price had checked herself in to the Powys Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre to tackle her issues with cannabis, and had been described as hard-working, kind and reliable by the centre.

Magistrates sentenced price to a 12-month community order with supervision requirements. They also said that Price had to pay the stolen money back on top of £85 court costs, meaning that she had a total of £1,296 to pay.
