Committal for accountant accused of theft

Thu, 20 Aug 2015

Committal proceedings against a former accountant who's been accused of stealing over £2 million have taken place.

63-year-old Richard Costain appeared at Douglas Courthouse earlier this week charged with five counts of theft.

It's alleged he stole the money, and over 100,000 Euros, from a bank account held with RBS International over a 10 year period between 2004 and 2014.

Costain has been committed to the Court of General Gaol Delivery - where he is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty in June to another charge of theft between 2008 and 2012.

There was no application for bail and Costain was remanded at the Isle of Man Prison until his next court appearance.
