A popular Adelaide newspaper has reported that renowned bartender Vini Wang has been charged with two accounts of theft for allegedly stealing $30,000 from the bar Hains & Co.
According to reports by The Advertiser, Wang was arrested on Thursday 22nd February after stealing close to $1,000 a week for several months from his workplace.
Wang is well-known in the industry across both Australia and Asia, as he has competed in a number of prestigious bartending competitions of late.
In speaking to The Advertiser, Marcus Motteram, owner of Hains & Co. said: “They are a trusted employee, one that counts and balances the till in the office at the end of the night. Now I feel deflated, I feel angry.”
Wang was bailed to appear in Adelaide Magistrates Court next month.
