A man who admitted embezzling more than £134,000 from an Edinburgh post office where he was the manager has been jailed for 16 months.
Daryl Louden, 26, from Edinburgh, had pleaded guilty previously to embezzling £134,177.46 from the branch in RS McColl’s in Ferry Road between 1 January and 29 September 2016.
Louden had taken the money to feed his gambling habit.
Sentence had been deferred for background reports.
At Edinburgh Sheriff Court, sheriff Frank Crowe told Louden his breach of trust had been enormous.
His actions, he said, had been devastating for those who worked with him and trusted in him.
