Banker admits stealing $5,000
A bank employee who was caught on camera stealing money has been ordered to repay the cash and perform 160 hours of community service.
Sidneka Cartwright, 32, of Kennedy Subdivision, pleaded guilty to a charge of stealing by reason of employment at her arraignment before Magistrate Samuel McKinney.
Cartwright, who worked as a senior customer service representative at the Carmichael Road branch of CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank, stole $5,000 from the float on April 24, 2019.
A check of surveillance footage showed Cartwright placing the money in an envelope before leaving for lunch.
She told police that she used the money to pay debts she had incurred while unemployed.
Cartwright repaid the money yesterday. If she doesn’t conclude the community service, she will be jailed for a year.
Mario Gray represented Cartwright and Inspector Philip Davis prosecuted.
