Woman accused of stealing from employer

Paphos police arrest a female employee for allegedly pocketing over 10,000 from her workplace


A former employee at a company in Paphos has been arrested on fraud charges, accused of issuing fake receipts and pocketing over 10 grand.

According to Cyprus News Agency (CNA), a 44-year-old local woman was arrested in Peyia on Wednesday evening around 6:30pm, following allegations that she stole over €10,000 by issuing fake invoices and failing to deposit the money in the company’s bank account.

The alleged fraud was discovered following an internal audit that took place after the woman was said to be acting suspiciously. Police said company officials filed a formal complaint against the suspect on June 3, alleging financial crimes carried out by the woman who worked as an employee from 2015 until May 2019.

It was not clear whether the woman's termination of employment took place before or after the internal audit.

CID Paphos and Peyia police investigators are jointly handling the case.
