Miss Callender added: "The embezzlement affected the company's working capital with the effect that that they could not maintain improvements, leading to resident numbers dropping from 40 or 41 to 29 and to four or five staff losing their jobs."

She was detained and interviewed by police and said she had four accounts including two of her husband's that he didn't check.

But she was caught when a director of the firm carried out an audit after spotting discrepancies that money owed to HMRC was being transferred to the account her wages went in to.

Sheriff Andrew Cubie deferred sentence and remanded her in custody.

Sarah McGartland, 51, transferred £102, 398 of Harveys Healthcare cash in to her and her husband's accounts over 11 months.

When confronted, McGartland admitted putting the money in to her accounts.

Between four and five staff have lost their jobs and the company has downsized as a result of her crime.

Harveys Healthcare is a care home company who look after elderly residents, mostly for Dumfries and Galloway Council and at the time had around 40 residents.

A MUM is behind bars after she embezzled more than £100,000 from a care home company and led to at least four people losing their jobs.

McGartland, from Ibrox, pled guilty at the city's sheriff court to embezzling the money between January and November 2015 from the company also, based in Ibrox.

She said she was in charge of online bill payments and changed the details to her own but kept the payee details the same so as not to rouse suspicion.

Gambling addict McGartland was an accounts clerk for them for 13 months.

Defence lawyer Alan Gravelle told the court that his client has a gambling addiction and had lost £88,827 as a result.

He said her marriage has broken down and she is living with her daughter and has a number of health issues including depression.

The court heard she was jailed in six months in 2010 for forgery.
