A former travel consultant stole $15,821 from his employer to fund his gambling habit.

From February 2013 to March this year Preston John Cunningham, now of New Plymouth, worked as a consultant at the Flight Centre Chartwell in Hamilton, the New Plymouth District Court heard last Friday.

On 41 occasions Cunningham used his personal ANZ credit card to process refunds to himself.

Judge Tony Couch sentenced Cunningham to six months' community detention, 100 hours' community work and nine months' supervision.

Do you have faith in police solving burglaries?

Yes - there's no faulting their commitment.

Mostly, but they are under-resourced.

Sort of - depends on when and where.

Not really - clearly a low priority for them.

Absolutely not.

Not sure - luckily I've never been burgled.
