A former manager of a care home in Spalding has admitted to cheating a resident in his care out of £4,500.

John Eric Valmoria (38), of Pennygate, Spalding, will be sentenced on July 17 after pleading guilty to fraud by false representation at Lincoln Crown Court on Monday.

Valmoria was charged in connection with an incident that took place between November and December 2012 when he was manager at The Bungalow Care Home in Park Road where he wrote out a cheque of £4,500 to himself before paying it into his own bank account.

DC Steve Nesbit of Spalding CID, the detective in charge of the case, said: “Valmoria was trusted by a vulnerable person in his care and he abused that trust despicably. 
“He initially denied the offence and only later acknowledged what he had done by pleading guilty at this week’s court hearing.”
