An Islip woman is facing felony charges after stealing about $24,000 from her Woodbury employer and using the money to pay for wedding expenses, according to the Nassau County District Attorney’s office.
Alison Glass, 41, was arraigned on grand jury charges of third-degree grand larceny and three counts of first-degree falsifying business records, said the DA. Glass faces a maximum sentence of up to seven years if convicted of the top charge.
“Thefts from private employers are not without victims,” Singas said. “The losses end up hurting the broader economy as well. My office will continue to prosecute cases of fraud against local businesses in our ongoing effort to ensure fairness for all Long Islanders.”
According to the DA, from Nov. 8, 2012 and March 20, 2013, Glass allegedly stole $23,827.83 from her employer by writing out six checks to cash that totaled $10,295.99 on her company’s corporate checking account, and making $13,531.84 in unauthorized purchases on the company’s corporate credit card that had been given to her for legitimate business expenses. Glass’ personal charges on this card included airfare for relatives traveling from El Salvador, flowers sent to her mother, and supplies for her upcoming wedding.
As company bookkeeper, Glass’ responsibilities included ordering office supplies, maintaining the accounts receivables and payables, maintaining the corporate credit card and general control of monies flowing through the business.
The theft was discovered and referred to the district attorney’s office when the owner of Glass’ company discovered the corporate credit card bill was larger than normal, and included at least 12 purchases unrelated to the business. A review of the corporate checking account revealed at least six checks that were written out to cash and both signed and endorsed by Glass.
