Agent sentenced


VICTORIAN travel consultant Annette Roberts was last Fri sentenced to two years and eight months in prison, after being convicted for stealing $670,000 from Travel & Cruise North East in Wangaratta (TD 01 Sep).

58-year-old Roberts pleaded guilty to stealing from funds returned by suppliers for trips cancelled due to COVID-19 in order to feed a gambling habit.

The agency’s owners have since repaid all customers by selling properties and delaying their retirement plans.
