New York Woman Charged With Embezzling Nearly $150K
Angela J. Berry, 35, of Cobleskill, New York, was arrested and charged today with embezzling some $149,000 from an unnamed Rotterdam-based business where she had been employed. According to authorities, Berry misappropriated the funds by making unauthorized company debit card withdrawals at ATM machines in multiple counties. Specifically, Berry has been charged with felony second-degree grand larceny. Her thefts reportedly started in the summer of 2007 and she took as much as $7,000 cash per month. Research indicates that Berry is a distributor for Sour Lake, Texas-based The Gourmet Cupboard. It is unclear if this is a separate enterprise than the victim company.
