Second Person Arrested In $600K Embezzlement Conspiracy In Florida
Marie A. Darnell, 61, of Ocala, Florida, was arrested today for her involvement in a conspiracy scheme to embezzle more than $600,000 from Ocala-based Suncoast Insulators for whom she had been employed as a bookkeeper. According to authorities, Darnell conspired with her then boss, Scott Wrazin, 36, also of Ocala (pictured here), who was arrested earlier this month on embezzlement charges. Wrazin reportedly worked as an accountant and bookkeeper for Suncoast Insulators and was responsible for conducting the company payroll. Prosecutors allege Darnell received $287,000 and Wrazin received nearly $327,000 in ill-gotten gains for a total of $614,000 stolen from the company. Reports suggest that the embezzlement occurred in the latter part of 2009.
