William Hill employee accused of reckless gamble

AN employee of betting firm William Hill has been accused of stealing nearly £75,000 from the company.

Kevin Ball, 32, of City Mill Lane, is charged with three counts of theft totalling £74,476.67 following an investigation by the Royal Gibraltar Police’s Serious Crimes Unit.

Mr Ball, who studied business management at the University of Huddersfield, allegedly stole bank credits owed to WHG Gibraltar, which trades as William Hill.

He worked at the firm as a human resources advisor, having previously worked in human resources at Dunelm Mill furniture store, in Liverpool until November 2011.

Mr Ball’s case will be heard today (Wednesday) at Gibraltar’s Supreme Court where he will be represented by Jeevan Daswani.
He is currently on bail having forked out the necessary £10,000 from his own savings.

A 29-year-old man was also arrested in connection with the investigation but has since been released without charge.

It is not known how Ball, who has worked at the firm since 2011, was able to deceive his company for so long.

  1. Think the reckless bit was that he bet on Manchester United to win the Premier League then compounded his error by betting that they’d win one of the cups. Ah well there’s always the Champions League. Oh wait…… :-)
