A MANAGERESS defrauded £14,000 from a Scottish bakery over a two-month period, a court heard.

Margaret Anderson, 44, of Yoker, Glasgow, admitted embezzling from Bradford Bakers of Giffnock when she appeared before Paisley Sheriff’s Court.

The court heard how Ms Anderson had initally impressed management and was promoted from shop assistant to manageress of a branch.

However, when an investigation was launched after losses were noted, it was revealed that she had been keeping takings rather than depositing them in the bank. Ms Anderson will be sentenced in mid-February.
