A former accounts manager from March faces a custodial sentence after admitting he stole almost £200,000 from his employers.

Robert Wilson (32), of Bronze Street, pleaded guilty to a charge of stealing £195,719.53 from his employers S and W Process Engineering, when he appeared at Peterborough Crown Court today (Thursday June 27).

Wilson stole the cash from the firm in Longhill Road, March, where he worked for around 12 years, between July 31, 2007 and November 13, 2012 to help fund his cocaine habit.

His bosses were in court to see him admit the theft and to see the case adjourned by Judge Sean Enright to allow pre-sentence reports to be prepared before Wilson is sentenced on July 26.

Wilson was granted unconditional bail.
