Nutley Police Arrest Woman Accused of Fraud, Stealing $10K from Doctor’s Office

Nutley NJ Theft and Fraud LawyersNutley New Jersey police recently arrested a woman accused of stealing almost $10,000 from her former employer.

The 56-year-old suspect, who lives in Haledon NJ, worked at a doctor’s office in Nutley, New Jersey. At this time, police have not provided details about the doctor’s office. Additionally, it is unclear what the suspect’s specific job was or how long she worked at the office.

Authorities began investigating the alleged theft in October 2014. Around that time, someone at the doctor’s office noticed that $10,000 had gone missing from the business account.

Investigators subpoenaed bank records and surveillance footage. As a result, police eventually identified the suspect as the culprit.

It is believed that the suspect fraudulently withdrew the funds from the business’ bank account.

The suspect was eventually placed under arrest by police. She has been charged with forgery and theft by deception.

If the suspect is convicted on the forgery charges, she could be subject to significant penalties. That’s because N.J.S.A. 2C:21-1 classifies forgery as either a fourth degree felony or a disorderly persons offense. If the suspect is convicted of felony-level forgery, he could be sentenced to up to 18 months in New Jersey State Prison.

After being placed under arrest, the suspect was released on her own recognizance. She has a pending court date in Essex County Superior Court in Newark NJ.

Nutley police hope that the doctor’s office will be compensated for the stolen funds.
