Police have been called in to investigate the disappearance of thousands of dollars from the Real Value IGA Supermarket at Grand Anse, St. George’s.
According to a well-placed source, fingers are being pointed at a senior member of staff for allegedly committing the offense.
The suspect is accused of stealing $5,000.00 of the supermarket’s funds sometime in July but it was not until last week the matter was reported to the police.
The source told THE NEW TODAY Newspaper that cash amounting to $18,109.91
was placed inside a deposit bag and entrusted to an employee for deposit.
However, he said it was not until the operators of the supermarket received the deposit slip from the bank last week that it was discovered that $5,000.00 was short from the original sum of money.
This newspaper learnt that the police have launched an intensive investigation into the matter.
