An arcade worker has appeared before magistrates charged with stealing nearly £1,800 from the gaming centre he worked at.

Mark Sutton is accused of taking the money from Cashino in Norfolk Street, Lynn, by falsely documenting cash winnings won by customers using gaming machines.

The 22-year-old, of Five Elms, Fairstead, Lynn, appeared before Lynn Magistrates’ Court on Friday facing two charges of fraud by false representation on February 14 and 16, and two charges of theft by employee on February 11 and between February 3 and 16.

Sutton, who had been employed at the gaming centre as a key holder for four months, did not enter pleas to any of the charges.

Magistrates decided their powers of punishment would be insufficient to deal with the case and declined jurisdiction.

The case was adjourned until Friday, March 21, for a preliminary hearing to be held at Norwich Crown Court.

Sutton was released on conditional bail until then, with conditions not to enter Cashino in Norfolk Street and not to contact any Cashino employees.
