CASH THIEF ... Michelle Rutherford stole money while working at Asda.

A CASHIER at a South Tyneside supermarket stole more than £1,600 from her till over a two-month period.

Michelle Rutherford took the cash during her shifts at Asda in South Shields, bit by bit, to try to repay credit card bills that she couldn’t afford.

The 48-year-old’s scam was uncovered after bosses investigating a drop in takings watched CCTV that showed her pocketing money on a number of occasions.
