FINED: Lee Stephens racked up £427 fuel bill
A delivery van driver who racked up a £427 bill using the fuel card of a former employer has been fined.
This is South Wales report that Lee Stephens, 30, from Swansea, had worked for a company contracted by TNT Express, but left following a dispute over a damaged package.
Mitigating, Grayson Tanner told Swansea Magistrates’ Court that Stephens’ employers had withheld money from his salary despite responsibility for the damage being disputed.
Stephens admitted seven counts of obtaining fuel from Moto Service Station, Penllergaer, in August and September last year.
He was ordered to repay the £427.21 figure in compensation, alongside a £190 fine, £85 court costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
