A woman who stole thousands while working for Liverpool’s Marriott Hotel has been jailed for 14 months, according to a report on the Wirral Globe.
Alexandra Tinton from Birkenhead reportedly stole £59,022 from the property’s petty cash fund through fraudulent transactions over a five-year period.
Liverpool Crown Court heard how Tinton had joined the Swallow Hotel as a casual bar worker in 1998 and became a full time financial assistant in 2004 working in a four strong team. The hotel, on Queen’s Square, was taken over by the Marriott Group the following year.
She was caught out after a finance manager from London came to Liverpool to cover for a colleague and noticed “abnormal adjustments” made under Tinton’s employee number.
