According to a story in the Hull Daily Mail, an employee who stole £90,000 from a Hull motor parts company was spared jail after promising to pay the firm back.

Waterloo Motor Trade Ltd. offered customers a ‘no quibble’ returns policy that was exploited by David Peters, 43, by filing false returns at the firm and pocketing the cash.

The prosecutor told the court that “[Peters] exploited [that policy] over a period of six years or thereabouts, from December 2006 to 2012, and he did so by using his position as a counter assistant to create false returns.”

A financial investigator was drafted in to look into Peters’ finances and she discovered numerous cash sums were being deposited into his bank account, which totalled £90,000.
