Bookkeeper jailed for million-pound theft

A bookkeeper stole more than £3m from her employers over a seven-year period,
lavishing her family with luxury items such as boats and a riverside apartment.

Sharon Hibbert, who stole the money from food supply company BHJ UK Food,
admitted at Hull Crown Court 11 specimen charges of theft and was jailed for
four years. Her husband was given a three-year sentence after pleading guilty to
money laundering.

The luxury items bought by Hibbert included a horse, sports cars and
jewellry. Neighbours said that she ran out of space on her drive for all the
gifts, reported The Times.
