A SUPERMARKET employee has admitted embezzling more than £2,000 from his work by “skimming cash” from self-service checkouts.
Robert McIntosh, 26, plead guilty to embezzling £2,135 from Sainsbury’s Local on Union Street when he appeared before Aberdeen Sheriff Court today. The court heard he was employed there at the time of the offence, which happened between December 14, 2014, and January 7 this year.
Fiscal depute Colin Neilson said: “CCTV was reviewed, which captured the accused skimming cash when managing the self-scan machines.”
He said the footage showed McIntosh “stealing” quantities of cash from the machines at the Aberdeen store.
Mr Neilson said McIntosh had expressed remorse for his actions in his police interview, and had stated he would be willing to repay the cash.
Sheriff Edward Savage deferred sentence on McIntosh, whose address was given in court papers as 4F Salmon Lane, Stonehaven, until next month for the preparation of a Criminal Justice Social Work Report.
