Waiter sentenced for stealing from boss
A waiter who stole almost £10,000 from his employer’s bank account after getting hold of the company cheque book has
been given a 24 week suspended jail sentence and made to pay £2000 compensation, plus costs.
Tofozul Khan, who was working at the Bindi restaurant in Grantham, in the Midlands, transferred most of the money to bank
accounts in Bangladesh via a travel company. The fraud was revealed when the restaurant owner carried out checks after
he noticed that money was missing from the account.
