Cooper Antony Edward
Following a licence review, the Commission determined to revoke the Personal Functional Licence issued to Anthony Edward Cooper under the provisions of Section 119 of the Gambling Act 2005 on the grounds he was unsuitable to carry on the licensed activities permitted by the Licence.
The Commission found:
- On 18 December 2018 Mr Cooper attended an investigation meeting which related to the theft of three promotional soft toys with a value of £10.00.
- On 27 December 2018 Mr Cooper was shown CCTV footage which showed him taking the toys and placing them up the sleeves of his jacket before leaving without making any form of payment. At the meeting Mr Cooper admitted to stealing the soft toys and was subsequently dismissed.
- Mr Cooper failed to inform the Commission of a key event, namely his dismissal in respect of gross misconduct.
