Bristol City Council manager stole £117,000

A council manager in charge of allocating money to improve disabled people’s homes stole more than £117,000 - to carry out DIY on his own house.

Stephen Parry, 57, was caught out using council funds when colleagues spotted that he was buying gardening equipment from B&Q for homes that didn’t have gardens.

Parry was jailed for 20 months at Bristol Crown Court for stealing a total of £117,000 from Bristol City Council to do up his £300,000 home in Wells, Somerset.

My comment: Was caught when colleagues spotted something amiss, where was the scrutiny from senior management and accounts?
