Thief could lose his pension

Eddie Maher is told he could lose his pension

A man who was jailed for five years for the theft of more than a million pounds from a security van in 1993, could now lose his pension.

Eddie Maher took the money while working a security guard. His last job was to drop off cash to a bank in Felixstowe.

He spent almost 20 years on the run in America before his arrest.

Police will go to court today, in an attempt to reclaim Maher's fire service pension, under the proceeds of crime act.
