California Couple Arrested For Embezzling $100K From Jaycees

Eric Wayne Stroschein, 49, and Judith Ann Stroschein, 46, both of Blythe, California, have been arrested and charged with embezzling more than $100,000 from the Blythe Jaycees where Eric had served as treasurer. According to authorities, Eric Stroschein made withdrawals from the Jaycees account and deposited the monies into his own and his wife's accounts. It is unclear how long the thefts have been going on. However, the police were notified last July when the Jaycees' president discovered its account virtually depleted. The couple own a business called Studio 10, a hair and nail salon where they were arrested Wednesday. The two have been charged with felony embezzlement and conspiracy.

We note that Studio 10 had its grand opening this past November. Gee, I wonder where the seed money for the business came from? What is in the water in Blythe, California? This is the second case this week involving a major embezzlement by a resident of that town (see the Lathan Willams case below and here).
