Worker stole takings

Have your say

HUNDREDS of pounds were stolen from the takings of a Grantham shoe shop by an employee, a court heard.

Shoe Zone was stripped of £780 by former employee Paul Brett, of Avenue Road, Grantham. The 29-year-old had admitted the charge at a previous court hearing on Friday and was due to be sentenced by magistrates in Grantham on Wednesday.

However, concerns over the state of his mental health led to an adjournment to allow the Probation Service time to write a full pre-sentence report.

Brett will reappear at the magistrates court on October 5.
