Distribution employee convicted for perverting course of justice.
A Pandora employee has been given a one-year community order with nine months supervision and 80-hours’ unpaid work for attempting to pervert the court of justice in a case concerned with the sale of jewellery stolen from the brand’s County Durham distribution centre.
Leslie Marie Gibson was found guilty of attempting to cover her tracks by urging a woman who bought charms from her to keep quiet, according to a report in The Northern Echo.
Ms Gibson texted the woman and urged her to “deny knowledge” if she was questioned by police.
Prosecutor Paul Newcombe revealed the content of other texts, which read: “I’m being investigated at work for selling charms.
“If they contact you and ask if you know me, or had a list sent, please will you deny any knowledge."
The original investigation into the theft and sale of Pandora stock continues.
