Investigating officer, Detective Constable Kathryn Neilson, based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “This case is unusual in that the way the offence of fraud committed, was both bold and brazen, mostly under the eyes of her employers from who she fraudulently obtained the money, for entirely her own gain.

“Puttick was ultimately employed in a position of trust and confidence and betrayed this at an extraordinary level.

“She started by obtaining smaller amounts of money from the company accounts as she begun the offence in the summer of 2016. By the time she was arrested, these amounts had increased tremendously and were at times committed daily.”
