Cashier arrested for stealing $5K from Tobago supermarket
A 19-year-old girl is expected to appear before a Scarborough Magistrate on allegations of larceny having cashed in a cheque for over $5,000 without permission to do so.
According to police reports, the 52-year-old manager of a supermarket in Pleasant Prospect, Tobago, had signed a number of cheques on May 1, meant to pay for goods for the supermarket.
However, around 8am on Monday, the manager received information that one of the cheques was missing.
The 52-year-old woman then made a check at the Main Street, Scaroborough, office of Republic Bank, where she discovered that the missing cheque, for an estimated $5,345, had been cashed in.
The police were notified and a team of officers led by PC Baird conducted inquiries.
A 19-year-old woman, a cashier at the supermarket, was arrested as a result.
The woman, who is said to be from Jaegars Hill, Plymouth, was questioned and is expected to be charged and brought before the courts this week.
