Estate Agent Jailed For Fraud
7:02am 16th October 2014
Police say a Camborne estate agent jailed on fraud charges caused anxiety and hardship for customers.
Truro Crown Court heard how Tim Glasson kept rents and deposits that should have been paid into a scheme.
The 51 year old has been sentenced to almost two years in prison after admitting the charges.
The court heard that the scam was "unsophisticated" and that he was "ashamed" of what he had done.
Detective Constable Jon Viant, investigating officer based in Camborne, said: “Tim Glasson has pleaded guilty to offences covering all aspects of his business as an estate agent.
“He has admitted to dishonestly keeping deposits paid for new build properties, keeping rents that should have been paid to landlords and keeping deposits that should have been paid into an approved deposit scheme.
“He abused his position of trust and during the past few years has caused financial hardship and anxiety for many of his customers.
“Today’s result shows that Devon and Cornwall Police are committed to bringing offenders to justice.”
