A 49-year-old woman is expected to appear in the Mossel Bay regional court on Monday to face theft and money laundering charges.

This after the George serious crime investigation team served her with a summons on August 3 to appear in court, said Hawks spokesperson Zinzi Hani.

Hani said it was alleged that between April 2015 and July 2016 the woman stole R477,430 from the golf club in Mossel Bay where she was employed as an accountant.

“Investigations revealed the suspect allegedly took money from her work safe and blew the money on slot machines after work. The matter was referred to the Hawks after the club’s auditors discovered irregularities,” Hani said.

The woman allegedly made 21 deposits into her personal bank account, Hani said.
