Compensation claim against £60,000 scratch card thief
A shop manager who stole lottery scratch cards worth £60,000 - and 'won' £20,000 - faces a claim for compensation.
A proceeds of crime application against Janet Lloyd-Jones, 53, of Llanwnog, Caersws, was adjourned at Caernarfon Crown Court.
She is serving a two-year sentence for fraud when she was working for a family firm at The Spar, Caersws.
The court was told that the benefit to Lloyd-Jones was £80,000, with assets put at £56,000. Compensation of just under £60,000 was being sought.
Barrister Jade Tufail, who is making the application, said Lloyd-Jones “gifted a large proportion of the money to her son towards purchase of property”. She described it as “a tainted gift” to hide assets.
Judge Huw Rees told Lloyd-Jones the case would be listed again next month to enable her to instruct new solicitors.
