Bakery supervisor charged with theft
A BAKERY supervisor was charged with qualified theft before the Regional Trial Court after she allegedly failed to remit the bakeshop’s sales proceeds.
The estafa complaint was initially filed by bakery owner Delia Manzano at the Office of the City Prosecutor against Arwin Bacus, the bakery’s supervisor, but the prosecutor’s office dismissed the estafa claims and instead filed a non-bailable case for qualified theft against the suspect.
In her affidavit, Manzano recounted that she was out of the country last April 2015 and entrusted the management of her bakery in Barangay Bacayan, Cebu City to Bacus, with the instruction to remit the sales proceeds every month to Manzano’s collector.
In June of that year, Manzano discovered from her collector that Bacus failed to remit the sales proceeds for the month of May, amounting to P56,000. Manzano said that she took pity on Bacus and gave her a chance to settle the payment.
However, a few months later, Bacus again failed to remit the sales proceeds for the month of September to October 2015, amounting to P103,589. With the unremitted amount now totaling to P159,589.00, Manzano brought Bacus to Bacayan Barangay Hall, where Bacus admitted to spending the money for her personal needs.
Bacus, a native of Pagadian City, Zamboanga del Sur, is currently at large.
