Melksham man who stole from Devizes firm back in court

First published in

A Melksham man who profited from his crime to the tune of £90,000 has been ordered to pay back £24,999, or face more time behind bars.

Paul Bolter was jailed for 20 months in August after he admitted stealing stock worth £45,000 from Devizes company Renelec to sell online.

The 40-year-old, who was a buyer at the firm, also sought ‘kickbacks’ from another firm to continue placing orders with them of a three year ten month period.

Now under the Proceeds of Crime Act he has been ordered to hand over £24,999 during the next year, or receive an 18 month jail term.

A judge at Swindon Crown Court ruled Bolter, of Sweetbriar Road, Melksham, had benefited from crime by £90,000 but could only pay the smaller sum.
