A Portadown woman has been charged with the theft of over £1,200 belonging to Ceara Special School.

Sandra Salt (49), Drumannon Road, appeared yesterday at Craigavon Magistrates Court,

The first charge alleges that between November 22 last year and April 16 this year she stole cash to the value of £1,210 belonging to Ceara School in Lurgan.

She is also accused that between November 17 last year and April 17 this year she dishonestly made a false representation, namely, held charity events for the purpose of raising money for Ceara with the intent of making a gain for herself and cause a loss to the school.

A public prosecutor said the full file in the case was not expected until July 20 and requested an adjournment until July 24.

Salt was remanded on her own bail of £300 to appear again on that date.

A condition of her bail is that she is not to engage in any charity event or raise funds through any charity event.
