Committal for Preston man accused of theft from employer

41-year-old denies stealing credit balances from Ocean Ford

A Preston man who denies stealing more than £66,000 from his former employer has been committed to stand trial.

Adam James Michael Welsh, of Squires Wood, is accused of five offences of theft which allegedly took place whilst he was a car sales manager on the Island.

The allegations centre around stolen credit balances from Bentley Isle of Man Limited which trades as Ocean Ford between 2014 and 2019.

The 41-year-old appeared at Douglas Courthouse where he was told his case will now be heard at the Court of General Gaol Delivery.

Bail was extended until his first appearance before that court on a date to be fixed.
