A young bank clerk who stole £46,000 (N12 million) from her employer to help achieve her dream of becoming a model has been sent to jail.

Mother-of-one and law graduate Rachael Martin, 24, stole the money in just two months from her employers, Barclays Bank, in Liskeard, Cornwall, England.

Ms. Martin (shown in photo), who was responsible for dealing with cheques, used the stolen cash to pay for a breast enlargement, thought to be worth £4,000, dental work worth £1,700, and liposuction, as well as nights out, drink and drugs, said a report in Daily Mail.

The mother of an eight-year-old son has now been jailed for 52 weeks after pleaded guilty to 25 counts of theft.

Sentencing her the judge, Jeremy Wright, said: “I am told you spent the money on cosmetic surgery, drink and drugs and having a good time.

“Your activity has been aggravated, to some extent, by the fact that suspicion would automatically be thrown on others, even if no other investigation took place.

“You are not (your son’s) sole carer, you leave him in the care of your parents whenever you like.

“Considering the seriousness of the crime... it seems to me a mockery if I didn’t send you to prison right away.”

Prosecutor Leadbetter said Martin began working at the Liskeard branch of Barclays in March 2010. Her role, he told the court, was to deal with agents from the Provident, taking their cheques in exchange for cash.

However, between September 2 and October 29 that year, he said she had stolen £46,000 after entering details relating to previously banked cheques into the system.

She had also purposefully logged incorrect sums in order to siphon off extra cash.

She typically stole £1,000 or £2,000 at a time, putting the funds into her own account. On one occasion she took £6,000.

“She spent money like water,” he told the court.
