KEY LARGO (CBSMiami/AP) — A cashier at a well-known Florida Keys resort is accused stealing nearly $ 1 million from the business.
The Monroe County State Attorney’s Office says Jamie Lynn Anderson, 39, was arrested Saturday on a grand theft charge.
According to our news partner the Miami Herald, Anderson was responsible for receiving check and cash payments to Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo. Officials said she randomly selected club member check payments between 2008 and 2014, then deposited them in place of cash received.
An outside accounting firm hired by Ocean Reef estimated Anderson took her employer for $857,393.49. She was fired in March 2014 after a surprise audit revealed a $700 cash shortage.
The Herald reported Anderson told investigators her husband forced her to rip off her employer.
It’s not known whether she’s hired a lawyer.
