Law enforcement in Parsippany NJ recently arrested an Elizabeth New Jersey woman accused of committing check fraud and stealing $40K from her boss.
According to Morris County authorities, the suspect committed the fraud offenses between April 2015 and October 2015. While working for her employer, the suspect allegedly stole checks worth more than $40,000 from the business and then cashed them in her own name.
The victim, who owns a business in Parsippany New Jersey, notified the Parsippany Police Department about the theft crimes in March 2016. Parsippany detectives then conducted a detailed investigation into the suspect and eventually uncovered enough evidence to arrest the suspect.
The 35-year-old suspect lives in Elizabeth, NJ. She has been charged with multiple fraud crimes, including check fraud and theft by deception.
If the suspect is ultimately convicted on the very serious theft and fraud charges, she could end up spending a very long time behind bars. Additionally, it is likely that a conviction for check fraud and/or theft by deception would result in the suspect being ordered to pay restitution to the victim.
