Pair of office workers commit white collar crimes

White collar crimes such as theft, embezzlement, and laundering carry with them large fines, jail time, and other stiff penalties. If convicted, it is very likely that the crime will be considered a felony, seriously hindering the guilty party of obtaining gainful employment upon release of prison and/or probation. If you have questions about white collar crimes in Pennsylvania, call Pittsburgh white collar crimes lawyer Gary Gerson today. Two former office workers from Toy Pipeline Contractors, Incorporated in Worthington, Armstrong County, PA are accused of stealing approximately $340,000 from the company. The suspects are a 41-year-old woman from Kittanning Township and a 52-year-old woman from Adrian, PA. Both women are charged with a dozen felonies for allegedly cashing unauthorized checks, using company credits cards, and administering themselves raises. The charges stem from incidents that occurred from January 2013 November 2014, according to the criminal complaint. The complaint alleges that the 41-year-old woman, who was responsible for accounts receivable, stole close to $270,000. The 52-year-old woman, who worked in the accounts payable department, is accused of stealing more than $71,000 by using the same methods. Each woman is charged with eight counts of theft in addition to charges of forgery, unauthorized access device, and conspiracy. Both of the women are expected to be arraigned today before District Judge James Owen. Police say missing money and unauthorized raises were discovered after the company’s vice president noticed the business was having problems making payroll. The business owner could not be reached for comment. Toy specializes in transmission, distribution, and assembly of pipeline systems in Western PA, Ohio, and West Virginia.
