As reported in the Oxford Mail, a hotel night manager stole nearly £17,000 of his employer’s money in an attempt to woo a man he wanted to be his lover.

Deanardo Blacklaws worked at the Oxford Belfry Hotel in Milton Common for two months in 2016 and, within days of starting the role, began an elaborate scheme to charm a man he was ‘besotted’ with – even though the man was already in a relationship with a woman.

Blacklaws used chip and pin machines and started to deposit money into four accounts under the pretence they were refunds, paying out a total of £16,950 from the hotel’s accounts.
