An organization that arranges journeys to New York for French vacationers discovered it was saying au revoir to more cash than vacationers, and now a bookkeeper is beneath arrest.
Regine Charles, 44, is accused of stealing a whopping $2.6 million from Bonjour USA Inc. between June 2010 and January 2016. She pleaded not responsible to grand larceny and falsifying enterprise information after allegedly lifting the hefty sum in a piecemeal method from her employer.
Charles wrote greater than 500 checks in increments of $5,000 or much less to folks she knew, however the funds largely circled again to her, in response to the Manhattan District Lawyer.
About $1.eight million in 400 checks was funneled to an alleged confederate, Daniel Louis, 45, who’s charged with appearing in live performance.
Charles was fired from Bonjour in 2016 after she went on trip and a substitute worker discovered discrepancies, authorities mentioned.
Her bail was set at $1 million in Manhattan Supreme Courtroom.
