LATEST – Salter & Son Employee in Fraud Allegation

Salter & Sons

An unnamed employee of the High Street’s oldest business, Salter & Son, has been suspended from duties and is being questioned by Porthampton Police today after allegedly taking money out of the business fraudulently.  An anonymous source told The Bugle that the person involved may have been steeling from Salters for several years and the sums involved could amount to tens of thousands of pounds.

This is another massive blow for the shop which, as exclusively revealed by The Bugle earlier this year, is suffering severe financial difficulties which has meant that they have recently had to engage the help of company turnaround specialists, Phoenix UK Ltd.

We asked Craig Salter, current MD and son of original owner David Salter, for comment but he has not replied to any of our messages.

We will bring you further updates when we know more
