Man stole £25,000 from firm
MONEY troubles led a company's financial controller to steal almost £25,000 from his employers.
Bosses at Cheltenham electrical firm ILEC Ltd were devastated when they discovered Noel Green, 63, had cheated them, Gloucester Crown Court has heard.
Green, of Grafton Court, Norwood Road, had secretly inflated his fortnightly wages when he paid himself by direct bank transfer.
He pleaded guilty to eight charges of stealing from the Tewkesbury Road company between July 1 last year and March 31 this year.

After hearing Green succumbed to the temptation to steal because of a combination of financial difficulties and poor health, Recorder Stephen Hall freed him with a 51-week jail term suspended for two years.
He was also ordered to do 200 hours of unpaid work and placed him under electronically tagged home curfew from 7pm to 6.30am nightly for three months.
