The Ex-Manager of Skegness KFC has been found guilty of stealing £8,200

A former manager appeared at Boston Magistrates court in connection to a theft that took place at KFC Skegness.

A former manager at KFC which has been ranked as one of the worst KFCs in the UK has appeared in court in relation to her arrest for stealing money from her employer.
Michelle Bland, of Toot Lane, Fishtoft appeared at Boston Magistrates court where she admitted stealing £8,200.

The former KFC manager was seen on CCTV stealing the cash on several occasions over an 11-day period in April.

Skegness manager found guilty of theft

Michelle Brand who admitted stealing the money admitted to having a gambling habit and sole the money to pay off her debts.

Alison McIlroy, prosecuting, said that Bland had responsibility for handling cash at the Skegness branch.

The first theft came to light when Michelle Brand made an entry on the record system for £1420. However, she only put £420 in the cash bag and put the £1,000 in her pocket.
Michelle Brand once again stole money four days later on April 8 where she stole £2,160. On other occasions she stole £1,590, £1,550, £1,270 and £630.

“All of these thefts were captured on CCTV and that’s how these offences came to light,” said the prosecutor.

While being interviewed by Lincolnshire Police, Michelle Brand, 44, admitted to the thefts and told the police she turned to gambling after losing her mother last year.

In mitigation, solicitor Vicky Clayton claimed KFC had become aware of till discrepancies on April 12 and had CCTV evidence but did not act straight away.

She added: “In my submission, KFC were already aware and subsequent thefts took place amounting to £4,410.

“These could have been avoided had KFC taken a much more pro-active approach.”
Vicky Clayton said her client knew of the CCTV cameras and said the crime was unsophisticated. She went on to say that her client knew she would not get away with the crime.

Boston Magistrate Court was told that Michelle Brand had now found a new job since quitting her job at Skegness KFC but is now likely to lose that job due to the reporting of her crime and court case appearance.

Michelle Bland who pleaded guilty to theft by employee was ordered to pay compensation to KFC of £8,200. She was also ordered to pay costs of £85 and was given a 12-month community order with15 rehabilitation activity requirement days was also imposed.
