A Cartridge World employee has been sacked after being cautioned by police for selling stolen printer toner cartridges on eBay. The 27 year old man, who worked in at the store in Accrington, Lancashire, was accused of stealing 81 toners worth around Â£1,500 between August and October this year; he was believed to have been reselling them on eBay. He was arrested and issued with an adult caution as it was his first offence.
Darren Turner, boss of Cartridge World, said “It’s awful to think that somebody I trusted could steal from me and I would warn other businesses, especially small ones, to be on their guard against this type of crime. Selling stolen goods is all too easy with the advent of eBay.”
