A former secretary of a Solihull plumbing company has appeared in court to face charges of stealing from the firm.

Rebecca Cunningham, of Acocks Green, did not enter a plea during the short hearing at Solihull Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

The 26-year-old is charged with stealing £7,325.75 from RB & P Services when she was employed with them between December 2007 and September 2008.

Miss Cunningham was granted unconditional bail and will be committed to Crown Court next month.
