David Darrell Smith , a former employee of Karl H. Menzies Company Limited, is accused of stealing $270.07 from the establishment after holding over as cashier for half-day. Today, the case came up for trial before Magistrate Emmerson Banner. During the trial, the court heard from three witnesses, namely the arresting officer, the investigating officer, and the Managing Director of  Karl H. Menzies Company Limited, Kay Menzies.  Menzies told the court at the end of the day, sales for May 16, 2018, it was discovered that the money was missing. Furthermore, Menzies told the court that a review of the surveillance camera showed that Smith did several actions that raised red flags. One such action was that he left the cashier booth with some money in one hand and returned ten seconds without the money. In cross-examination, Smith told Menzies that since he was only holding over for the cashier in the morning, it could have been the cashier who stole the money when she returned in the afternoon. However, Menzies disagreed claiming the amount stolen doesn’t match any transaction conducted in the afternoon. The case was adjourned to February 21, 2020.
