A Hook man is to appear at crown court accused of stealing more than £223,000 from a local garage.

Kristoffer Brick, of New Road, is facing 15 charges of theft by an employee, relating to money allegedly stolen from Gareth Hughes Motors, between December 2006 and April 2016.

The amounts range from £381.99 to £213,290.72.

The 39 year-old appeared before Haverfordwest magistrates on Tuesday. No indication of plea was given, and the court entered a not guilty plea to all charges on his behalf.

Magistrates declined jurisdiction, and Brick will next appear at Swansea crown court on April 27.

He was released on unconditional bail.
