A shop assistant jailed for stealing more than £60,000 from a designer clothes store at Bluewater has had her cash confiscated.
Erika Martins, 21, pleaded guilty to theft in April at Maidstone Crown Court, where she was sentenced 10 months in prison.
Investigations by Kent Police found Martins was employed as a cashier and sales assistant at the Hollister - but from July 2012 she had been defrauding her employers by conducting cash refunds to herself.
On August 6, a confiscation hearing at Maidstone Crown Court deemed Martins benefitted from £63,584 as a result of her thefts.
A total of £59,830 made up of seized cash and funds in her bank account was declared available and has been awarded to Hollister as compensation under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
Martins, of Crown Woods Way, Eltham, London, was also ordered to sell her car which was valued at £1,500.
