Veritable Arsenal Found At Alleged Arizona Embezzler's Home
Hoang Tan Duong, 35, of Glendale, Arizona, was arrested last Thursday on charges he embezzled more than $1 million from Razmatazz, a furniture company for whom he had been employed as a bookkeeper over a four year period. According to Phoenix police, who executed a search warrant, a veritable arsenal was found at Duong's home, including more than 50 semi-automatic rifles, hand guns and assault rifles spread out among each room in the house. The weapons were valued at more than $100,000. Duong is accused of using his credit card to go on a spending spree and having the company pay the bills as if it were corporate expenses via a company account. Duong reportedly purchased cars, an ATV, motorcycles and scooters with some of the funds. Police also found about $80,000 worth of electronics, jewelry and furniture at his home. Duong's wife, Bich Van Doan, 35, was charged with one count of child abuse because their 2 year old was openly exposed to the weapons. Duong was charged with six counts of fraud and one count of child abuse.
