Michigan Grocery Manager Headed To Trial For Allegedly Embezzling More Than $200K

Ted Gould, believed to be in his early to mid-50s, of Portage, Michigan will be heading to trial for allegedly embezzling more than $200,000 from the Lakeshore Fresh Market where he had been employed as manager.  Over a 14 month period, Gould allegedly siphoned cash receipts from the grocery store to help support a gambling problem.  Meanwhile, the grocery store proceeded to bounce checks to vendors and otherwise fail to meet its financial obligations, causing severe problems.  According to media reports, Gould was previously accused of embezzling at least $50,000 from the Hardings market in Plainwell, Michigan in the mid to late 1990s.
