From Pleasantville Patch, “An Ossining woman starts a prison sentence of 18 months to four-and-a-half years in state prison for stealing more than $250,000 from her Pleasantville employer over a four-year period. Also, Erika Flores was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $251,437.58, Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. announced Wednesday.
She worked there for about 10 years and was responsible for accounts payable for the credit cards used by the company.
An investigation by the Mount Pleasant Police Department and the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office revealed that Flores used the company credit cards between January 2012 and June 2016 without permission and falsified records to conceal her personal charges.
She also had corporate checks drawn to the credit card company so there would be sufficient funds to cover her personal charges without detection. It was determined that she stole $251,437.58 by using two company credit cards for personal expenses such as food, travel and clothing.”
