[A] former branch manager of Howdens Joinery, Kingstown, Carlisle, has appeared before magistrates in Carlisle and pleaded guilty to a £24,000 fraud.

The court was told Anthony Lee Heggie, 36, of Cresswell Avenue, Harraby, Carlisle, falsified 73-company invoices while he was a branch manager of the company, with a view to make a financial gain and with intent to cause a loss to the company, in that the invoices were made or required for an accounting purpose.

The offences took place between February 3, 2015 and April 28, 2017; this was a sustained period of false accounting when the defendant was in a position of trust as a branch manager.

Magistrates ‘sent’ the case to Carlisle Crown Court for sentencing, saying their powers were not sufficient, Heggie was granted unconditional bail until April 27.
