Diesel Thief Used Firm's Card To Steal £3,000 Worth

Wednesday May 15 2013

Barnsley Magistrates' Court Barnsley Magistrates' Court

A COURIER used his firm's card to fraudulently take more than £3,000 of diesel, Barnsley Magistrates' Court was told.

Lynsay Steven Burgess, 24, of Kendray, took some of the fuel away in containers, said Chantel Lowery-Green, prosecuting.

She said Burgess's dishonesty came to light when his bosses noticed 'unauthorised activity' on the fuel payment card.

Burgess, who was not represented by a solicitor, said nothing when he was given the chance to put forward his side of the story.

He admitted fraud by false representation and the case was adjourned until May 2 for a pre-sentence report.

Burgess was granted unconditional bail.

It's a news page. Some people actually just read it. Why the need to comment? And anyway, you managed to find something to comment about, didn't you?
