As reported in The Sun, a warehouse boss stole nearly £30,000 worth of stock by secretly posting parcels to himself to sell on.

Daniel Butler stole 800 items including electricals, toys and games from Electrolve Ltd and ran his own online business from his home.

Butler’s front room was set up “like a packing room for packing parcels and he was selling it all online on eBay and Amazon”, a court was told.

Electrolve currently has nine employees but, as a result of the theft, cost-cutting measures had to be brought in.

 “Everyone had to cut their hours down and try to save money to get back what we lost,” said director Mr Margarson. “No one had to be laid off but everyone did have to reduce their hours.”
