Driver swindles Arriva of €11,762
A bus driver admitted in court today to having swindled Arriva of €11,762 by not remitting cash from the sale of tickets.
Manuel Ciappara, 28 of Birkirkara was jailed for 30 months after admitting to misappropriation.
He started keeping the money as soon as he began working for the company in March, Police Inspector Jonathan Ferris said.
He issued thousands of tickets to passengers and was caught out by audit officers.
