The trial of a former cashier at the Department of Inland Revenue was yesterday adjourned to January 17.
Breanna Symonette, 28, of Dundas Town, Abaco, who was responsible for collecting value-added tax (VAT) payments as a cashier at the Department of Inland Revenue, is accused of stealing $38,214.39 over several months.
Symonette appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney on Monday for the start of her trial on charges of falsification of accounts and stealing by reason of employment.
Prosecutors allege that Symonette began stealing money on February 23, 2018 and it continued until June 21, 2018. They say she falsified the accounts by allegedly not inputting all of the money collected into the system.
Symonette, who is represented by Troy Kellman, has denied the allegations.
