A female security officer has been sentenced to nine months' hard labour, after pleading guilty to a charge of larceny of $31,500 in cash and cheques from Bhagwansingh's Hardware in Chaguanas.

Thirty one year old Crystal Mc Mayo, of Malick, appeared before Magistrate Joanne O'Connor in the Chaguanas 1st Magistrates' Court on Monday to answer to the charge.

She was among a team of S.W.A.T. security officers who were handed one RBC Bank Deposit Bag containing $16,522 in cash and $15,048 in cheques by the hardware's Sales Supervisor on Friday November 3rd to be deposited at the bank's Independence Square, Port of Spain branch on that same day.

The Sales Supervisor subsequently learned the following Friday that the money was not deposited and a complaint was made to the security company.

The security company subsequently conducted an internal investigation, which resulted in a confession and the accused being handed over to the police.

Mc Mayo was arrested and it led to the recovery of $1,500 and the seizure of two Samsung S7 Edge cellular phones. It is alleged that the accused used the cash to purchase the devices.

The cheques were not recovered.
