Leeds woman who sent firm into administration after stealing takings told to pay back £25k

Have your say

A Leeds woman has been ordered to pay compensation of nearly £25,000 after she stole takings from a discount warehouse which later went into administration.

Susan McCaffrey enjoyed sunshine holidays in Egypt, Turkey and Morocco during the time she was pocketing cash belonging to Price Pounder in Bradford. The store closed in June last year and a few months later McCaffrey, of Lulworth Crescent, Cross Gates, was jailed for 15 months for stealing £23,901 over a 13-month period.

McCaffrey had initially been employed as an accounts manager, but she was later promoted to finance director and some of the employees who lost their jobs at the store were at court last year to see her jailed for 15 months after she admitted theft. The 56-year-old told police she had been struggling financially.

McCaffrey appeared at Bradford Crown Court for a hearing under the Proceeds of Crime Act and Judge Hatton confirmed that she would have to repay a total of £24,609 in compensation.
