An AP Manager has been jailed for three years and four months for fraud against her employer at Liverpool Crown Court.
The investigation found that between 2016 and 2020, she took more than £200,000 from the accounts of her employer, B&M Waste Services based in Wirral to support lavish lifestyle.
The fraud came to light after she left the company in February 2020. Whilst working in her trusted position at the company, she made fraudulent payments to a bank account.
Police Staff Investigator Ben Carpenter, who led the investigation alongside D/C Martin Watson, said: “This was a significant, devious and protracted crime which placed the business under significant financial pressure, causing distress and worry for everyone employed, and of course for their loved ones.
“Fraud can and does devastate individuals and businesses, and thankfully Long has now been prevented from causing any more harm, and will hopefully have learnt a tough lesson about how seriously police and the courts take such matters.”
