Cape Town - A former manager at the Pearl Valley Estate clubhouse in Suider-Paarl in the Western Cape, appeared in a Cape Town court on Wednesday charged with fraud and theft.

Elana Lee-Ann Adams appeared in the Bellville Specialised Commercial Crime Court before Magistrate Sabrina Sonnenberg, who warned her to appear again on 4 May.

The charges involve an amount of R77 153. According to the charge sheet, the estate comprises a golf course, homes, and the clubhouse.

The clubhouse employs waiters to serve meals and drinks to members of the club.

It is alleged that she manipulated the electronic system between November 2013 and April last year.

According to the charge sheet, Adams received the takings from each waiter after their respective shifts.

Club members paid cash for their orders or paid by means of bank cards.

It is alleged that she regularly cancelled cash transactions on the electronic system and kept the cash for herself.

On one count, it is alleged that she received R2 957 cash from the waiters in April last year but failed to hand the amount over to management and kept it for herself.
