Woman jailed after stealing from Stamford firm

A woman who stole thousands of pounds from her employer in Stamford - by making payments into her own bank account - has been jailed.

49 year old Paula Moreno Melgar of Archers Way, Great Ponton was caught after Tiger Asset Management got into financial difficulties.

That's despite apparently having a large number of orders.

When going through the books, bosses discovered Melgar had taken over £12,000 from the business over a period of more than a year.

She's been handed a 16 month jail term at Lincoln Crown Court.
